I Was a Less Able Reader: What Concert Choir Taught Me about Reading Instruction.
Reading Horizons, v35 n5 p430-41 1995
Uses the author's experiences as a less-able member of a university choir as metaphor for how less-able readers experience the demands of learning a complex symbol system. Translates the positive experiences as a choir member into classroom contexts. Advocates choral reading, heterogeneous grouping, regular opportunities for practice, limitation of stress-producing moments, and literacy events as performances. (RS)
