Literacy and the Oral Foundations of Education.
Egan, Kieran
Harvard Educational Review, v57 n4 p445-72 Nov 1987
The author traces oral forms of expression used in nonliterate societies and states that children, before they become literate, also depend on the spoken word for learning and communication. The author suggests that a better understanding of orality helps educators gain a fuller sense of the cognitive tasks that children undertake. (Author/CH)
