Editorial Reviews

Colleen Lelli, Cabrini College: “I chose this text for the in-depth phonics strategies and word identification strategies that are discussed in this book. Generally my students find this book to be an easy read and like the book a lot.”   Carianne Bernadowski, Robert Morris University: “A major strength of this text is its accessibility for students through the explicit explanation of strategies. Students particularly like the visuals provided with each strategy.”   Anitra E. Butler, Prince George’s Community College: “This text does an excellent job providing in-service teachers with strategies for literacy instruction.  I value the anticipation guides in the beginning of each chapter in order to set the purpose for reading.  I also appreciate the informational aides that the text provides as well as the graphic and organizational aides.”    Dr. Laura C. S. Jones, Nazareth College: “Fox’s text helps my students to develop a more principled understanding of how readers and spellers acquire the word identification strategies they need to be efficient, automatic decoders and encoders.”
