What is included with this book?


Self-Paced Phonics: A Text for Educators,Fifth Edition, is the ideal resource for pre-service and in-service teachers to get practical instruction that helps them develop a sound understanding of both the content and pedagogy of phonics. More than a tutorial in phonics, this self-regulating, self-monitoring resource covers both the content and pedagogy of phonics. Designed for use with a minimum of instruction, at the reader's own pace, the book is particularly teacher-friendly and immediately applicable to Web-based instructional models.
