Which method for teaching children to read is best? Educators have wrestled with this question for decades and several approaches have emerged. For this discussion:
- Compare and contrast the whole-language, whole-word, and phonics approaches to reading instruction.
- Which seems to be the most effective? Explain.
Please include the following in your response:
- Refer to and integrate ideas presented in the text and any supplemental readings.
- Cite outside resources if necessary to make your point.
- Follow current edition APA style and format for citations and references.
You will be evaluated on how well you demonstrate your understanding of the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned readings, discussions, and independent investigations. You will also be evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers the questions asked.
