If, for a brief moment, we could look into a child's mind while he or she were reading, would we find the child's approach to reading compatible with the teacher's approach to teaching? The answer would probably depend upon how the teacher views the reading process. If the teacher believes that reading is a process of identifying individual letters or individual words, then the teacher will probably not be inclined to teach in the way that the child is inclined to read.
