Rather than treating phonics as an end in itself, this brief yet comprehensive book shows how phonics fits into the overall process of a child's learning to read, helping students understand how phonics can be integrated successfully into a comprehensive classroom reading program. While it includes a wealth of suggestions for practical classroom applications, the book has a solid research base so that students will understand both what they are doing and why they are doing it. The text includes information about all types of phonics programs and many different approaches to teaching phonics for reading and spelling.
