Washington Literacy Tutor Training Handbook: Spiral of Strategies for Decoding Segment.
New readers must be taught a variety of decoding skills to allow them to increase fluency and get on with the process of meaning making. Four of the most important strategies of decoding are: (1) using context clues; (2) developing a sight vocabulary of whole words; (3) analyzing the parts of words; and (4) attending to the letter-sound (phonics) connection. Practical applications of these strategies enable a learner to become an independent reader. (RS)
