i.t.a. Correspondence Course.
Initial Teaching Alphabet Foundation, London (England).
A series of lessons designed to explain what the Initial Teaching Alphabet (i.t.a.) is and to prepare prospective teachers of i.t.a. materials and methods as thoroughly as possible is presented. The eight lessons of the course, for each of which a separate booklet is provided, include the following: (1) The difficulties of traditional orthography and the development of i.t.a., (2) Study of i.t.a. characters, (3) Study of i.t.a. characters continued, (4) How to spell in i.t.a., (5) Teaching reading with i.t.a., (6) Children's writing and spelling, (7) Setting up i.t.a. in a school, and (8) Remedial reading and i.t.a. Each lesson consists of a series of notes which covers a specific aspect of i.t.a. followed by a short test. The author recommends that the best results will be obtained from the course if teachers work through it in a fairly short time while all the problems discussed are kept fresh in the mind. In addition to the lessons is a separate booklet containing an i.t.a. booklist and various teaching materials for use with i.t.a. (Author/DH)
