How the Alphabet Works: A Handbook for Teaching Someone to Read. Based on the 15th Century Hornbook.
Albert, Elaine Acker
Written to be used as a manual for a tutor and not a workbook or primer, this expanded version of a phonics book is designed to help parents teach their children to read and for those who wish to help older children and adults to read. Sections include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "What Went Wrong? (an essay); (3) "HOW to Teach Someone to Read by Beginning with Basic Phonics" (the main body of the manual); and (4) "Special Problems." A chronology, a 24-item bibliography and a page depicting a "hornbook for the twentieth century" with brief instructions are attached. (RS)
