Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The study of reading as a process conducted in the last twenty-five years has furthered the understanding of emerging literacy and, as a result, has influenced instructional programs for children. One theoretical base created from this exploration has come to be known as the "whole language concept" (Goodman, 1986). Many instructional features are related to the implementation of the whole language concept in a school program. One of the major features is the development of a literature base. Children's involvement in the reading process through works from the different genres offers many opportunities for children to relate to their reading experiences and to create their own ideas.
