Nielsen, Diane Corcoran; Monson, Dianne L.
Journal of Educational Research, v89 n5 p259-71 May-Jun 1996
This study examined two kindergarten literacy frameworks (environment and events) and their effect on kindergartners' literacy development. Observations, interviews, and pre- and postmeasures of literacy achievement indicated that students in the emergent literacy kindergarten made significantly more literacy gains than those in the reading readiness kindergarten, despite being considerably younger.
