Examines an 11-week phoneme-awareness program in kindergarten followed by a first-grade reading program that emphasized explicit, systematic instruction in the alphabetic code. Analyzes a phonetically-based spelling program. Compares a control group in the school district's regular basal-reading program with a treatment group. Concludes that the treatment children outperformed control children on four specified measures of word recognition. (SC)
