Florez, V.; Hadaway, N.
Reading Horizons, v27 n4 p269-75 Sum 1987
Identifies three problem areas in teaching students with limited English proficiency to read: (1) the readers' input (what they bring to the reading process), (2) the author's input, and (3) the reading process itself. Recommends that teachers acquaint themselves with students' prior knowledge and language competence level and strive for a balance between the familiar and unfamiliar. (AEW)
