Phonics Phacts.
Goodman, Ken S.
Noting that the word "phonics" has become so politically charged that it is probably the most widely misunderstood and misrepresented aspect of language education today, this book takes a fresh look at the debate about the use of phonics in reading instruction. After defining phonics, the book addresses the science, teaching, and politics of phonics. Chapters are: (1) Heat without Light; (2) Some Basic Misconceptions; (3) Phonology: The Sound System; (4) Orthography: The Written Symbol System; (5) Phonics: The Connector; (6) The Roots of Literacy; (7) Learning about Phonics; (8) The Politics of Phonics; and (9) Phonics in Reading Instruction. A bibliography is attached. (NKA)
