This revision of Teaching Word Recognition Skills seeks a more balanced approach toward all the word recognition skills.nbsp; It includes an in-depth discussion of vowels and consonants before addressing traditional word recognition skills.nbsp; The new edition has also attempted to include a significant amount of research citations to support the teaching practices and strategies outlined in the book.nbsp; The book is intended to supplement the existing classroom text; however, it may stand alone in courses that focus on word recognition skills.
