Are your students familiar with the phonics they will teach?

This easy-to-use, self-paced tutorial builds a strong foundation of background knowledge in phonemic awareness and phonics for teachers who need a basic course in phonics or a more complete understanding of the subject they will teach. Teachers become the students--reviewing patterns and meanings as well as letter and sound relationships, onsets and rimes, and how syllables affect pronunciation.

The tenth edition continues to provide various activities teachers might use to develop phonemic awareness and phonics. A Comprehensive Review of phonemes is included with page numbers. The author explains details about phonics, including word identification, syllabication, and structural analysis. Her thorough explanations include coverage of sequencing consonants and vowels, illustrating how to divide words into syllables and how to accent syllables. She also provides an expanded treatment of phonological awareness and word analysis that explores ideas for vocabulary instruction. Pre-tests and post-tests throughout the book give readers quantitative, immediate results of what they have learned. Highly successful and popular, Phonics for the Teacher of Reading ensures that teachers have the background knowledge they need to understand why and how to teach phonics and word analysis.

Features new to this edition:

  • NEW! Includes a new section on Structural Analysis , an important word identification skill that entails dividing long or complex words into meaningful parts.
  • NEW! Features a newsection on the study of prefixes, inflectional and derivational suffixes, root words, the “words” in compound words, and the apostrophe in contractions.
  • NEW! Gives a comprehensive treatment of word identification that follows a logical sequence beginning with the smallest units and ending with the largest.
  • NEW! Presents a list of seven guidelines that may affect the spelling of words with prefixes and suffixes.
  • NEW! Provides an updated review of research that supports the teaching of phonics, including more classroom-friendly language in the frames on phonemic awareness and a reordering of frames to give the r-controlled vowel pattern a sharper focus.
