Literature-Based Reading: A Focus on Learning Disabled Students.
Andersen, Carol; Farris, Pamela J.
Illinois Schools Journal, v70 n2 p15-23 1991
Proposes using literature to teach reading to learning-disabled students as an alternative to basal readers, because authentic text is more predictable, cohesive, and interesting. Additional components of a literature-based program include reading aloud, silent reading, self-selection of materials, meaning-centered curriculum, oral response groups, evaluation, and parental support.
