Abstract
A model for programming proposed by Taylor, Short, Frye and Shearer (1992) was adapted and trialed by classroom teachers (R-9) to investigate how a single text could be used as a basis of instruction for all students in a class. The main focus, though, was to explore how an approach indicated by the model could support students with learning difficulties in the development of literacy skills. Teachers wrote summaries of the single texts and used them for teaching skills that included phonemic awareness, decoding and comprehension. The research provided positive indications that this approach could successfully be used as part of a whole class literacy program.
