More about Whole Language Methods of Reading Instruction for Students at Risk for Early Reading Failure.
Pressley, Michael; Rankin, Joan
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v9 n3 p157-68 1994
This literature review contends that whole-language approaches to reading are not well supported by scientific analyses of reading and reading instruction. The paper argues that whole language is not the preferred approach of outstanding primary and special education teachers, who favor instruction which balances decoding instruction and development of meaning-making competencies.
