Blue Jays Win! Crows Go Down in Defeat.
Wuthrick, Marjorie A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v71 n7 p553-56 Mar 1990
Teachers tend to teach children in different reading groups in qualitatively different ways. Crows (slower readers) work on phonics in isolation twice as often as more accomplished Blue Jays and spend much less time on reading silently or in context. Since this situation inhibits reading achievement, teachers should seek Blue Jay potential in every child. Includes 33 references. (MLH)
