Teach Decoding: Why and How is an excellent resource for preservice and inservice teachers who need a text that clearly outlines how to teach decoding skills so that children can apply them. Based on the work of Jeanne Chall, Isabelle Liberman, Keith Stanovich, L. C. Ehri, and many others, Dr. J. Lloyd Eldredge details in his book why phonics knowledge is so important in decoding and why decoding abilities are so vital in the reading process. Other benefits this book offers readers:

  • A better understanding of the teaching and applications of decoding in line with the No Child Left Behind initiative
  • Explanations and illustrations of how decoding can aid in remediation and intervention in reading-clinic settings
  • The alignment of decoding with language development and the study of language arts skills, including speaking, listening, reading, and writing
  • A continuing focus on how decoding instruction impacts fluent reading and reading comprehension
