Teaching Students To Use Phonics Effectively with Emphasis on Rimes and Onsets.
Dwyer, Edward J.; Ralston, Elizabeth
The teaching of phonics, the relationship of sounds to letters in an alphabetic language like English, is important for success in learning to read competently. Noting that there continues to be much debate as to what constitutes good phonics instruction, this paper presents a rather simple but basically sound and inexpensive approach for teaching phonics. It cites four basic principles and then gives directions for producing a phonics instruction kit. The kit, with accompanying instructional strategies, can provide instructors with a means for fostering the learning of phonics among readers. Appendixes contain a lesson plan model for fostering the learning of a consonant, and a list of common rimes and key words. (NKA)
