Teaching Low-Achieving Children Reading, Spelling and Handwriting: Developing Perceptual Skills with the Graphic Symbols of Language.
Markoff, Annabelle Most
Two objectives of this book are to provide a rationale for using basic language forms (sounds, letters, and words) in the perceptual-skill training of low-achieving children and to present techniques for teaching reading, spelling, and handwriting to low-achieving children. The first chapter, on the reading/spelling inversion, explains the perceptual relationships between reading and spelling and discusses the perceptual demands of the two processes. Each of the other three chapters deals with developing the necessary perceptual skills and focuses on the following teaching areas: reading--decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, and motivation; spelling--word selection, word meaning, word structure, word perception, word production, learning management, remedial spelling in groups, sound spelling, the syllable sayer, syllabication, multiple-choice spelling, and diagnostic spelling tests; and handwriting--motor performance, evaluation, special problems, sample teaching techniques, and matching exercises. Name and subject indexes are included. (JM)
