written assignment

Find research supporting instruction in phonics. Select an article (be sure to clearly indicate which article you have selected by either appending it to the end of your assignment or sending me the URL) and evaluate the evidence offered in favor of phonics instruction in a 500 to 1000 word paper. Are you convinced of the value of the basic-skills approach to reading instruction? Why or why not? Is there any benefit associated with the whole language approach to reading instruction described in your text? If so, what?
