Bergeron, Bette S.
Journal of Reading Behavior, v22 n4 p301-29 1990
Analyzes journal articles pertaining to whole-language instruction in elementary classrooms to compile a definition for this term. Finds that definitions and descriptions of whole language vary widely throughout the literature and that differences exist between school- and university-based authors' perceptions of the concept.
