Phonological Awareness and Primary Phonics

The book is a brief, practical guide for teachers who want or have to teach phonics. Phonological awareness and phonics are integrated so that the foundation of phonological awareness prepares students for phonics and makes the 2 areas reciprocal. In work with struggling readers, Dr. Gunning developed a system to build on what students know and teach them to analyze words independently. He also found that students need a lot of practice to become effective readers.

Phonological Awareness and Primary Phonics is a practical resource manual designed to provide step by step suggestions for assessing and instructing students in grades K-2 in phonological or phonemic awareness and phonics skills and strategies. This book provides an overview of phonological awareness and phonics, but goes far beyond that to present virtually everything a teacher might need in order to implement a high-quality, effective word analysis program.

English-Espanol Reading Inventory for the Classroom

This most successful informal reading inventory has been adapted to meet the strong demand for K-12 teachers to assess Spanish-speaking students in their native tongue. Since it can assess a student's reading competency in Spanish as well as English, this inventory is particularly valuable considering the influx of English as a Second Language (ESL) students and Spanish-speaking students in the public schools. Taking a constructivist approach, the authors combine both traditional and holistic methods to determine a student's reading level. This pragmatic, well-designed inventory can be used in undergraduate/graduate courses dealing with reading remediation, in public schools with Latino populations, and in ESL teacher training programs.
