The standard work on phonics, Why Johnny Can't Read opened a flood of criticism toward the popular " look-and-say" method which has produced mixed results. With eye-witness accounts by the author who spent time in classrooms where both methods were used, he documents the results from classrooms K-12, with astonishingly strong results for the phonics method of instruction. Recommended by the U.S. Department of Education, it comes with complete instructions and materials for teaching children at home, including phonetic lists and charts of letters. Originally written in 1911, prices and some terminology are outdated, but the general principles are not. A strong emphasis on parents teaching their own children is also infused throughout. 256 pages, softcover.
