The Language Foundation of Reading Recovery.
Pinnell, Gay Su
Network News, p6-9 Fall 1998
Arguing that language is the foundation of work in Reading Recovery, this article discusses the role of language from several different perspectives. The first section discusses the role of language in literacy learning. The second section deals with the role of language intervention in supporting learning. The role of language in creating learning networks is the topic of the third section, and the role of language in supporting quality implementation is discussed in the fourth. Finally, the fifth section deals with language, relationships, and maintaining the community. It discusses barriers to community and to forming educational partnerships, and how language and conversation can help to overcome them. (SR)
