Making Sense of Syllables (Cooke 2011)


SKU: making-sense Category:

This investigation revisits Groff’s 1971 metanalysis of syllable instruction in light of more recent research. From linguistics, phonological theory, phonetic analysis, and cross-linguistic studies help explain common problems with the syllable-based pedagogies. From education, emerging evidence supporting the positive effects of morphological instruction on reading, spelling, and vocabulary, and of structured orthographic instruction on comprehension , bring Groff’s earlier considerations of the impact of syllabic and morphological instruction into the 21st century.
