Words-From Print to Meaning: Classroom Activities for Building Sight Vocabulary, for Using Context Clues, Morphology, and Phonics.
Burmeister, Lou E.
This book is written for preservice and inservice teachers to explain basic theory of modern traditional word analysis programs and to supply suggestions and guidelines for classwide and small-group instruction in the various components of word analysis. Chapter 1 deals with ways of utilizing context clues to help children develop their vocabularies and identify new words. Chapter 2 deals with ways of making the teaching of morphology both more meaningful and more relevant. Chapter 3 is concerned with the content of modern phonics programs. Chapter 4 includes suggested classwide, group, and individual activities useful in the teaching of phonics to children. This book stresses the practical, rather than the theoretical, aspects of teaching reading, with a maximum of emphasis placed on examples for classroom practice. (RB)
