Description

  • Word Journeys Second Edition Assessment Guided Phonics Spelling and Vocabulary Instruction.
  • Imported from USA.

This trusted teacher resource and course text provides a comprehensive approach to assessing and building children's
word knowledge (grades K–8). Kathy Ganske shows how carefully planned word study can improve students' reading and
writing skills while fostering their appreciation of language. Complete instructions are provided for implementing the
Developmental Spelling Analysis (DSA), an easy-to-use assessment tool, and for tailoring instruction to learners'
strengths and weaknesses. Numerous word lists, student work samples, and "Literature Links" are included, along with 27
reproducible forms. The large-size format facilitates photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they
can download and print the reproducible materials.

*Addresses the Common Core State Standards.
*Incorporates additional activities and technology tips, plus updated research findings.
*Chapter explaining the meaning of word study and its role in literacy instruction, including "Researcher Voices"
perspectives from noted experts.
*Ideas for making the most of small-group instructional time.
