Reading Foundations addresses the issue of teaching phonemic and orthographic skills to beginning and struggling readers.
It outlines programs that provide a step-by-step process and structure with fully developed practice exercises. These exercises are designed so that they can be used in the classroom, in a withdrawal situation, and in special classes.
There are three programs covered in this book that together examine ways to overcome reading failure for learners who are having problems in the early stages of reading acquisition:
- Good Feedback Program
- Step by Step Phonemic and Orthographic Intervention Program
- Story Tree Program
