Freeman, Yvonne S.
NABE: The Journal for the National Association for Bilingual Education, v13 n1 p59-78 Fall 1988
Evaluates six major Spanish basal reading programs published since 1980 for Hispanic-American students. Concludes that these translated materials reflect a mechanistic part-to-whole view of reading and ignore current theories of reading as a meaning-seeking process. Contains 39 references and 23 sources of Spanish language materials. (SV)
