Devin, Alligators, Jellyfish, and Me.
Primary Voices K-6, v5 n1 p40-42 Jan 1997
Describes how a first-grade teacher used the "hypothesis-test" approach with Devin, a first grader who struggled as a reader and writer. Points out that, when she started working with Devin, she wanted to understand his difficulties, but by the end, she realized that it was her curriculum, not his difficulties, that needed to be in the foreground.
