A Fresh Look at Phonics, Grades K-2 : Common Causes of Failure and 7 Ingredients for Success
Using the authors' expertise from 25 years in the field, as well as current research and evaluation of phonics programs in schools, A Fresh Look at Phonics provides the ingredients needed for success, and underlines the common reasons for failure. It is full of tips, tech recommendations, teacher training ideas and a wealth of how-tos. Divided into two sections: success and common causes of failures, it allows users to easily dip in and out when necessary. Each ingredient of success offers: background, sample instruction; lists of best practices; common instructional pitfalls; and a section that prompts educators to look at and reflect on specific aspects of their teaching.
