The 11 Deadly Sins of Remedial Reading Programs.
Milligan, Jerry
Teaching Pre K-8, v24 n1 p88-89 Aug-Sep 1993
Eleven shortcomings of remedial reading programs are delaying the program; analyzing word identification skills; teaching phonic skills systematically; avoiding having students read; using controlled-vocabulary reading materials; disregarding student background knowledge; encouraging readers to sound out unfamiliar words; insisting upon accuracy in oral reading; treating letter reversals; overemphasizing the seriousness of reading deficiencies; and maintaining complex testing and recordkeeping.
