Early Literacy in Cuba: Lessons for America
Abel, Carolyn Davidson; Abel, Charles Frederick
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v5 n1 p33-43 Sum 2017
How did Cuba erase illiteracy in a single year? How did they combine both a phonics approach with the constructivist meaning-based model for teaching reading that we cannot seem to manage here in the states? This paper seeks to shed light on Cuba's impressive 1961 National Literacy Campaign and reflects upon implications for early literacy development in America.
