Learning To Read, 1947.
Western, Richard J.
Journal of Education, v183 n1 p14-32 2002
This essay describes one man's experiences learning to read in the 1940s. He notes that at that time, parents were not expected to teach their children to read prior to entering school. That was viewed as the teacher's job. However, his parents filled his house and his life with literacy-based experiences. Once he learned to read, his community provided more opportunities for experiences with the written word. (SM)
