Phonemic Awareness Training Works Better than Whole Language Instruction for Teaching First Graders How to Write.
Eldredge, J. Lloyd; Baird, James E.
Reading Research and Instruction, v35 n3 p193-208 Spr 1996
Compares writing products of first graders who were taught to write using a structured approach (including phonemic awareness and phonics training) to the products of students taught using a holistic approach. Finds that children in the structured program wrote more words, wrote better overall compositions, and spelled more words and different words correctly than students taught holistically. (RS)
