Reasoning in a Reading Context: Deductive Inferences in Basal Reading Series.
Franks, Bridget A.; Mulhern, Sharon L.; Schillinger, Susan M.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v9 n4 p285-312 Aug 1997
Examines three complete basal reading programs to determine how frequently logically necessary relationships are expressed in the text and whether direct instruction in making logically necessary inferences accompanies such expressions in basals. Finds that, although basals offer a natural context in which logical understanding may be constructed, teaching instructions did not pursue teaching reasoning in reading comprehension. (PA)
