THE SOURCE: A Curriculum Guide for Reading Mentors
This resource from Just Read, Florida! was developed for teachers or volunteers working with children; however, sections of Part 1, Ideas for Building Readers, may be very useful for adult alphabetics instruction.
- Chapters One and Two explain reading development and ten research findings.
- Chapter Three explains reading difficulties and four basic principles for effective intervention.
- Chapters Four and Five cover phonemic awareness, phonics, and decoding (or syllabication) skills.
- Chapter Seven covers word building with prefixes/suffixes and includes word lists and games.
- Pages 69-112 present one-syllable phonograms and related multi-syllable words (or word families).
NOTE: Chapters Nine and Ten and Part 2 are not well aligned with best practices for adult reading instruction.
