Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The reading achievement of school-age children has been a major issue in education for many years. Numerous articles have been written about declining reading achievement scores and the result has been a great deal of research focused on identifying effective instructional programs. Many basal reading programs have been written in an attempt to develop the "perfect" reading instruction program. However, as Bond and Dykstra (1967) concluded, the most important variable in reading instruction is not the reading program but the teacher.
