Does Whole Language or Instruction Matched to Learning Styles Help Children Learn To Read?
Stahl, Steven A.; Kuhn, Melanie R.
School Psychology Review, v24 n3 p393-404 1995
Research on whole language suggests its effects on achievement vary markedly from site to site, and differences may be based not on whether a teacher uses it but how it is implemented. Learning-styles research suggests that little is gained from matching children to methods using learning styles. Instead, any approach needs to take into account various aspects of reading and combine aspects from different approaches. (Author/JDM)
