Children's Literature for Reading Strategy Instruction: Innovation or Interference?
Cooper, Patricia M.
Language Arts, v86 n3 p178-187 Jan 2009
This article explores how reading strategy instruction that targets children's literature can unwittingly interfere with the development of a reading life. It compares the use of story-based children's literature for reading strategy instruction with the "untaught" story. It asks: What, if any, role does a read aloud that is unfettered by formal instruction related to comprehension play in early education?
