Matching Classroom Instruction with Reading Abilities: An Unmet Need.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v11 n3 p23-28 May-Jun 1990
This article discusses a widespread failure of schools to match reading instruction to children's needs, identifying large class sizes, dependence on basal reader programs and questionable testing practices as contributing factors. Basal materials are seen as contributing to standardized curricula and impeding efforts to shift teacher behavior toward differentiated instruction. (Author/PB)
