The Timing and Teaching of Word Families.
Johnston, Francine R.
Reading Teacher, v53 n1 p64-75 Sep 1999
Discusses why word families should be taught. Argues that the timing of such instruction is critical and that teachers can use children's invented spelling to determine what they already know and what they are ready to learn. Offers a developmental perspective to guide teachers in the planning and pacing of word-family instruction. (SR)
