Understanding Shifts in Reading and Its Instruction.
Stahl, Steven A.
Peabody Journal of Education, v73 n3&4 p31-67 1998
Proposes a new understanding of what reading is, using that understanding to propose a new sense of balanced reading instruction. Discusses shifts in reading instruction over the years, examines three goals of reading (automatic word recognition, comprehension, and motivation), and describes the balance needed between direct instruction of skills and whole language to achieve the goals.
