Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This study will examine the rationale for a literature-based approach to teaching reading in the middle school language arts classroom to replace the basal reader approach. The purpose for implementing a literature-based program is to provide students with quality literature as a model of language, time to engage in the reading process, and the opportunities to discuss ideas generated in the process of reading. Objectives and instructional implications for such a program will be explored from a theoretical basis.
