Self-Paced Phonics: A Text for Education
Students can work at their own pace with minimal direct instruction using this concise workbook designed to provide future teachers with a sound understanding of both the content and pedagogy of phonics. Using evaluative feedback from both students and reading professionals in the field who have used the previous edition, the contents of this workbook have been expanded and strengthened to better serve the needs of prospective teachers. Strong evidence indicates that children who are taught phonics at the beginning stages of reading instruction tend to do better than those who are not. Therefore, the concentration of this text is not on whether or not phonics should be included in beginning instruction, but how phonics can be taught most effectively.
