Knowledge of language is the foundation for teaching children to read explicitly and systematically. In this thorough and accessible book, readers will understand the organization of written and spoken English; discover the connection between language structure and how individuals learn to read; get examples of students' writing to help you interpret children's mistakes; apply the concepts of phoneme awareness, spelling. vocabulary, and comprehension in sample lesson plans and adaptations. All of this will enable educators to identify, understand, and solve the problems students with or without learning disabilities may encounter when learning to read and write.--From publisher description.
