Dahl, Karin L.; Scharer, Patricia L.
Reading Teacher, v53 n7 p584-94 Apr 2000
Investigates eight first-grade whole language classrooms in terms of what phonics skills and concepts were taught, where phonics instruction occurred, and how it was conducted. Shows gains in ability to decode and encode words for all students. Finds that teachers responded to individual needs of learners, and that skills were taught within the context of meaningful reading and writing activities. (SR)
