Teaching Word Recognition Skills.
Dawson, Mildred A., Comp.
A series of articles with the chief emphasis on phonics as a means of analyzing words is presented. Various articles pertain to elementary, secondary, and college level instruction. The first of the five parts into which the volume is divided is comprised of a single article which gives an excellent overview of the field of word recognition. Part 2 includes a dozen recent articles that present the overall general program of word analysis and the policies that underlie it. In part 3 are found articles which evaluate certain phonic elements and the utility of generalizations concerning them. For instance, two articles discuss rules that deal with accents on syllables and their effect on the pronunciation of words. Part 4 is concerned with such aspects of word recognition as sight vocabulary, sensory cues, visual discrimination, contextual clues, and phonics. The articles differ from those in Part 3 in that they more narrowly deal with particular aspects of word recognition and are more concerned with methodology. Certain articles were found to be only partially pertinent to a volume dealing with word recognition and are included in a general section in Part 5. Tables and references are included. (Author/DH)
