|Abstract:||An historical and theoretical review is presented of the notion of a reading skills hierarchy. Sources of the major types of reading programs in current use are described. It is suggested that three types of programs can be Identified, namely, a whole word approach, sight-phonics, and letter-pattern control. The first two types of programs contain a similar non-skills hierarchy orientation while the third mentioned can be defined In terms of a hierarchy. A theoretical analysis of a reading skills hierarchy considered linguistic and cognitive viewpoints. It was argued that it is instructionally advantageous to construct a decoding hierarchy but not a comprehension skills hierarchy.|
