Emphasizing Form and Meaning Separately in Prereading and Early Reading Instruction.
van Kleeck, Anne
Topics in Language Disorders, v16 n1 p27-49 Nov 1995
This article proposes that meaning and form (the sound-letter correspondences) are both important in beginning reading, but that initially they should be taught separately. Support for this position is provided, and a two-stage model of preliteracy development is offered, with the first stage emphasizing meaning and the second stage emphasizing form. (Author/DB)
