Whole Language and Collaboration Work: Evidence from At-Risk Kindergartners.
Hoffman, Paul R.; Norris, Janet A.
Journal of Childhood Communication Disorders, v16 n1 p41-48 1994
This study compared reading gains of low-socioeconomic status, at-risk kindergarten students within two curricula collaboratively written by classroom teachers and speech-language pathologists. Compared to the alphabet-based curriculum, the whole-language curriculum showed greater gains in the use of print to represent meaning and similar gains in sound-letter correspondences and letter names.
