What is included with this book?
A classic in the field, this practical, self-paced tutorial allows readers to independently study and learn the important aspects of phonics, phonemic awareness, and word analysis they need to know in order to succeed on teacher certification or competency tests. The format allows readers to check their knowledge throughout, and two posttests at the end of the book may be used to ensure mastery of the content. Designed to save course time and maximize students’ control over their learning, the book prepares students for the state reading examinations now required in many states. Highly respected authors Donald J. Leu and Charles K. Kinzer focus on phonics, phonemic awareness, and word analysis, yet show clearly the importance of readers bringing meaning to texts as they decode meaning in printed materials.
The Tenth Edition of Phonics, Phonemic Awareness, and Word Analysis for Teachers: An Interactive Tutorial features expanded sections on instructional practice in each section; Take a Look videos and Apps features with links to websites with author-vetted video clips and apps that further explain or extend chapter content; updated online resources in each chapter; increased attention to meeting the needs of English Language Learners and Struggling Readers; and guidance on how to quickly diagnose students’ developing awareness of their phonics, phonemic awareness, and word analysis skills by analyzing their writing.
