Knowledge of language is the foundation for explicity and systematically teaching phonemic awareness, word recognition, spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension. In this essential book--from a leader in the literacy field--readers discover the connection between language structure and how people learn to read; master language skills with chapter exercises and self-tests; and apply the concepts of language in analyses of student responses. All of this enables educators to identify, explain, and solve the problems that students with or without disabilities may encounter when learning to read and write. Speech to Print--ideal for preservice instruction in higher education programs and in inservice professional settings--helps prepare teachers to meet the challenge of ensuring that "no child is left behind."
