Debatable Issues Underlying Whole-Language Philosophy: A Speech-Language Pathologist's Perspective.
Shapiro, Holly Rose
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v23 n4 p308-11 Oct 1992
This article challenges two assumptions underlying whole-language philosophy: spoken language is directly comparable to written language, and skilled readers rely on contextual information more than on the printed word. Speech-language professionals are urged to engage in some instructional practices associated with whole language but also advocate methodologies inconsistent with whole language. (Author/JDD)
