* Critiques of National Reading Panel: Beginning Bibliography

Posted By: Stephen Krashen on March 22, 2005
 
Karen Eichler’s review of Vaughn and Linan-Thompson’s Research-Based Methods of Reading Instruction, Grades K-3 unquestioningly accepts the National Reading Panel’s conclusions as valid. Readers of the TC Record should know that nearly all the conclusions of the NRP report have been thoroughly criticized by a number of scholars. Here is a beginning bibliography: Richard Allington’s collection, Big Brother and the National Reading Curriculum: How Ideology Trumped Evidence, Gerald Coles’ Reading The Naked Truth: Literacy, Legislation, and Lies, Elaine Garan’s Resisting Reading Mandates, and my article, “Claims about phonemic awareness, phonics, skills vs. whole language, and recreational reading,” available at http://www.nochildleft.com/2003/may03reading.html.
