Shanklin, Nancy L.
Journal of Reading, Writing, and Learning Disabilities International, v6 n2 p137-48 Apr-Jun 1990
The ethnographic study of four successful intermediate level resource teachers working with high risk urban children found similarities in their instruction of reading comprehension (e.g., using activities personally meaningful to the child) and changing students' miscue patterns. Significant differences also emerged as well as nonuse of some instructional approaches recommended by leading reading educators. (DB)
