Learning to Read: The Never-Ending Debate.
Smith, Frank
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n6 p432-35,438-41 Feb 1992
Methods such as phonics or whole language can never ensure that children learn to read. Children must learn from people--from teachers initiating them into the readers' club and from authors' writings. Children's relationships with teachers, each other, and the learning task itself are supremely important. Observation, not testing, gauges student progress. (nine references) (MLH)
