Dick Ran, Dan Ran, and so Did the Gingerbread Man: A Quick Survey of 20th Century Reading Instruction.
Wesleyan Graduate Review, v1 n1 p39-41 Spr 1997
Looks briefly at reading instruction throughout the 20th century, noting how it has moved from the alphabetic method, to the sight method of Dick and Jane, back to decoding, then to the extensive use of literature in whole-language programs, swinging back toward more skills instruction. Hopes that the millennium will allow the development of balanced and synthesized program. (SR)
