The Messenger May Be Wrong, but the Message May Be Right.
Journal of Research in Reading, v18 n2 p146-53 Sep 1995
Suggests that abandoning controlled vocabulary texts on the assumption that reading is a psycholinguistic guessing game was wrong. Claims that the current emphasis on strategy instruction, scaffolded reading experiences, and the use of writing to foster letter-sounds may provide good outcomes for those teachers and children who dreaded reading instruction in dull texts and even duller workbooks.
