A Bridge Too Far? How Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy Fail the Apprentice Reader.
Williams, Sandra
English in Education, v35 n2 p12-24 Sum 2001
Investigates two types of texts (a reading scheme book and a children's literature text) to see how the reader is constructed by the text, and what kind of reading support is offered. Finds that the literary text offers more reading support than the supposedly carefully constructed reading scheme book, which constructs a passive reader to whom things happen. (SR)
