Description

This self-paced tutorial approach gives pre-service teachers practical information about phonemic awareness, phonics, and word analysis, and provides in-service teachers with a helpful approach to updating their knowledge, preparing for teacher certification, or studying for competency tests.

 

When used in reading methods classes, this text saves valuable class time by enabled pre-service teachers independently to learn about and check their knowledge of phonics, phonemic awareness, and word analysis. The information is also structured to help in-service teachers develop and refresh their insights about word analysis. Readers will gain the information they need to know about a wide range of word analysis strategies, phonological and phonemic awareness, onset and rime patterns, phonic generalizations with high utility, context use, sight word knowledge, developmental spelling phases, morphemic and structural analysis, and using a dictionary. Several end-of-book posttests help readers assess their understanding of the important information in these areas.

 

Highly respected authors Donald J. Leu and Charles K. Kinzer focus on phonics, phonemic awareness, and word analysis, yet show clearly that it is important to keep in mind that readers bring meaning to their texts as they decode meaning in printed materials.
