Duke, Nell K.; Mesmer, Heidi Anne E. – American Educator, 2019
The need to explicitly teach letter-sound relationships in U.S. classrooms is settled science. However, too often such instruction is not provided in the most efficient or effective way.

Kearns, Devin M.; Whaley, Victoria M. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019

The term assistive…
