Are Basal Readers Becoming Too Difficult for Some Children?
Perry, Leslie Anne; Sagen, Patricia Smith
Reading Improvement, v26 n2 p181-85 Sum 1989
Compares basal readers' vocabulary load in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Finds that the average number of words introduced in books for first grade increased during this time. Recommends that teachers adjust instruction to meet the needs of less able students when using basals with a high vocabulary load. (RS)
