Stanovich, Keith E.; Stanovich, Paula J.
Journal of Research in Reading, v18 n2 p87-105 Sep 1995
Outlines a strategy for resolving disputes between the whole language and phonics camps in reading instruction. Reviews research on the role of context in word recognition, the process of reading acquisition, and analytic versus holistic approaches to reading acquisition. Suggests that the way is clear for whole language advocates to reconstitute their position in a scientifically respectable way. (RS)
