Every Person a Reader Every Person A Reader
An Alternative to the California Task Force Report on Reading

Stephen D. Krashen

Every Person A Reader is an alternative to the state of California's Reading Task Force Report, Every Child A Reader. Krashen presents solid evidence that California's "literacy crisis" is not a result of inattention to "skills". His research-based recommendations include vastly improved libraries, more emphasis on free reading, quality literature programs, and encouraging long-term development, not just early intervention. Krashen also argues that the phonics controversy has been over-stated: All sides agree that some phonics is useful when it makes texts comprehensible and that phonics should not be the core of a language arts program.
