Content Area Literacy Instruction: Viewpoints of Elementary Teachers and Literacy Professors.
Kinney-Sedgwick, Martha; Yochum, Nina
Reading Research and Instruction, v35 n4 p298-315 Sum 1996
Compares fifth-grade teachers' views of teaching a content area literacy lesson with those of literacy professors. Finds that the majority of teachers followed the text closely and took a dominant role as transmitter of knowledge, while professors were not constrained by the text and emphasized a constructivist view of learning. Discusses implications to end this divisiveness. (RS)
