The Uses of Educational Research: Comments on Carbo.
Chall, Jeanne S.
Phi Delta Kappan, v71 n2 p158-60 Oct 1989
Furthering the "Kappan" phonics debate, the author claims that her research results were misunderstood by critic Marie Carbo and that evidence concerning phonics' instructional benefits is cumulative, particularly for children at risk. Based on 80 years' empirical and theoretical support, Carbo's "no conclusion" stance is unsupportable. Includes 30 references. (MLH)
