Research and the reading wars


Kim JS. Research and the reading wars. The Phi Delta Kappan. 2008;89 (5) :372-375.


The author describes how researchers have resolved scientific controversies in early reading instruction and explains why good research seems to have a delayed and limited effect on reading policy and practice. The article summarizes findings from major syntheses of early reading instruction over the past four decades and concludes with ideas for accelerating the communication of research to practitioners and empowering teachers to establish norms of excellent practice.
