Online Articles about Phonics and Balanced Literacy for Adolescents

In some of the digging I've done in the literature about phonics, effective reading instruction, and literacy, I've come across some interesting articles that may be of interest to some of you. I've posted them here:

Whole Language Lives On: The Illusion of "Balanced" Reading Instruction (Louisa Moats)

 Older Children Need Phonemic Awareness Instruction, Too (Susan Szabo)

What Content-Area Teachers Should Know About Adolescent Literacy (National Institute for Literacy)   

Phonics in ESL Literacy Instruction: Functional or Not? (Monica L. Jones)

Adolescents and Literacy: Reading for the 21st Century (Michael L. Kamil)

Decoding and Fluency: Foundation Skills for Struggling Older Readers (Anita L. Archer, Mary M. Gleason, and Vicky L. Vachon)
