Reading Research Quarterly, v30 n1 p50-74 Jan-Mar 1995
Observes low socioeconomic-level learners during literacy instruction for two years. Finds similarities in learner concern about accuracy. Notes that cross-curricular differences centered on applications of phonics knowledge, responses to literature, coping strategies, and learner perceptions of themselves as readers and writers. Finds a significant difference on written narrative register favoring whole-language learners. (RS)
