Literacy and Illiteracy: Teaching the Nonreader to Survive in the Modern World.
Calfee, Robert
Annals of Dyslexia, v32 p71-91 1982
Issues in illiteracy are discussed, and the author comments on facets of the English language writing system. He advocates a formal approach in which comprehension, rather than decoding, is the focus for students, including slow learners or disabled readers. The approach would concentrate on patterns larger than the letter-sound unit. (CL)
