Psychological Perspectives on the Early Reading Wars: The Case of Phonological Awareness.
Calfee, Robert C.; Norman, Kimberly A.
Teachers College Record, v100 n2 p242-74 Win 1998
Reviews the conception of early literacy acquisition as a social-cognitive activity, sketches the evolution of phonemic awareness, and discusses how psychological research might contribute to understanding and applying this construct. The paper suggests the importance of synergy between previously warring factions and highlights the need for ongoing letter-sound activities and development of phonological awareness. (SM)
