Reading comprehension -- Study and teaching;
Language arts programs in the elementary school are moving toward holistic strategies. Goodman (1986) explains "Language is easily learned when it is whole, real and relevant, when it makes sense and is functional, when it is encountered in the context of its uses, when the learner chooses it" (p. 26). Retelling of stories, or whole units of meaning, used as a teaching strategy, is in keeping with the holistic approach to teaching the language arts.
