Reading Instructional Resources Database - Literary References (Search Results)

The essential cognitive elements of the reading process have been outlined in the cognitive framework of reading. To assist educators in organizing their practice around the cognitive framework, we've created a way to easily search for instructional activities and literary references that specifically address skills and knowledge outlined by the cognitive framework of reading. To find out more about the Literary References section of the Instructional Resources Database, we have provided an overview of the database.

This book contains a large collection of activities that work on four different areas of reading -- 1. building reading foundations, 2. working with little words, 3. working with high-frequency words, and 4. working with big words.

The last chapter in this book, "What kind of phonics instruction will we have?" is a reprint of a paper presented at the National Reading Conference. The positioning of this paper at the end of this book is curious, as it provides a thoughtful and eloquent rationale for the instructional approach -- it would seem better to provide this overview at the beginning.
