Mothers' Implicit Theories of Early Literacy Instruction: Implications for Children's Reading and Writing.
DeBaryshe, Barbara D.; Binder, Janeen C.; Buell, Martha Jane
Early Child Development and Care, v160 p119-31 Feb 2000
Examined relationship between family literacy practices and mothers' beliefs about early reading instruction, and children's emergent literacy skills. Identified mothers with 'whole language' theories and mothers with phonics orientations. Found that mothers' implicit theories were associated with their modeling of literacy behaviors, helping their children write, and with children's independent exploration of writing and current levels of literacy skill.
