Some brief overview of book

The resource guide provides the instructor with suggested answers and responses to the Application Activities at the end of each chapter. Linguistics is much more than a study reserved for academicians. Linguistics has real-life applications to effective teachingnow more than ever.

With the increased emphasis on phonemic awareness and phonics in the teaching of reading, teachers need to understand how language works. When teachers are familiar with basic linguistic concepts, they are better prepared to make decisions about how to teach reading, spelling, phonics, and grammar to all students, including English language learners. In this unique linguistics course-in-a-book, David and Yvonne Freeman explain essential linguistic concepts in a thorough, but manageable manner and show the connections between linguistic theory and classroom practice.

They demonstrate that the greater a teacher's understanding of basic language structures and processes, the easier it is to make good decisions on tough topics like phonics, spelling, and grammar. They present: the basic concepts of linguistics in everyday language examples and activities that apply linguistics concepts to teaching reading, spelling, phonics, and grammar to all students, including English language learnersend-of-chapter applications that link linguistic theory and classroom practice.Understand more about how language works, then use that knowledge to help your students learn. Turn prescriptive approaches into linguistic investigations.
