Mastering Decoding Skills: English, Reading.
Campbell, Evelyn C.
This course is designed to assist high-school students who have not achieved mastery of decoding skills in relating phonemes to graphemes and sequences of graphemes representing these phonemes; to deal systematically with the basic word pattern of English; and to analyze the structure of word pairing, morphology, roots, prefixes, suffixes, and derived inflectional forms. Additional emphasis is given to instruction in the use of redundancies available in syntactic structures toward analysis and identification of previously unknown words, and to verify meanings as they are modified by context, including punctuation. Besides these phonetic, structural, and contextual analyses, dictionary use and enrichment activities are also important aspects in the course design. The course rationale, program principles and procedures, teaching strategies with respect to each approach, and assessment procedures are described. Resource materials are listed separately under student resources and teacher resources. (Author/AW)
