Do Basal Characters Read and Write in Their Daily Lives?
Radencich, Marguerite C.
Elementary School Journal, v87 n4 p467-74 Mar 1987
This study examined role models presented in primary-, fourth-, and seventh-grade basal readers and across basal series. Findings conclude that since children are influenced by models, basal authors should include role models who read and write frequently, with pleasure and variety. Teachers should provide live modeling or point out basal role models in instruction. (JS)
