Developing Better Reading : The Phonetic Trail to Good Reading Pastures
Developing Better Reading The Phonetic Trail to Good Reading Pastures Author:Rod and Staff The cover is dusty but the pages are very clean and the book has never been used. — ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ — Developing Better Reading — Middle Grades and Above — For middle grades and above, this is a concentrated phonics course of 30 lessons. Students who missed phonics instruction in the first two grades would... more » benefit from this study taken slowly through the year. Poor readers in the upper grades or adult level could also benefit.
The first five lessons present five basic understandings--the alphabet, the consonants and their sounds, the vowels and their sounds, the meaning of a syllable, and the meaning of an accent.
Syllables and accents are important because many pronunciation rules are based on syllabication and accents.
Included in this course are lists of words that are to be used as oral reading tests, thus permitting a teacher to check each pupil's progress.
Definitions and rules of pronunciation, spelling, and syllabication are simply and clearly stated and distributed throughout the book to provide for a systematic and logical learning process.« less
