At the end of each chapter, Mark adds experiences from his personal life that express what the chapter is all about. This book challenges the reader to rethink what he/she believes.

Understanding how sounds form--and how sounds combine to create words-- is imperative to learning how to transcribe speech phonetically. "A Phonetics Workbook for Students "by Heidi Harbers prepares students to transcribe speech phonetically by helping them become aware of the sounds of English phonology. Following a systematic, learning-friendly organization, chapters progress from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription. Unlike other workbooks, its exercises are varied and challenging and develop both foundational and critical thinking skills. Features: Unique "meta" approach keeps students actively involved as they get reacquainted with the sounds of the English language. Early emphasis on sound awareness lays the foundation for a more complete understanding of the English language and how to transcribe speech phonetically. Progressive organization sequences chapters in a learning-friendly format that transitions from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription. Review and practice chapters (Chapters 4, 12, and 20) summarize key information from each unit and help students solidify concepts before learning more. Consonants presented by manner class (Chapters 14-19) provide an organizational framework to assist students in learning the similarities and differences between sounds. "Thoughts to Ponder" questions encourage readers to think about the English sound system and reflect upon its complexities. "Words of Advice" learning strategies model metacognition and assist students in becoming successful, self-directed learners. Extensive chapter exercises balance challenge and variety, while developing foundational and critical thinking skills. Specific exercises for practicing morphophonemic changes assist students in understanding the relationship between stress, morphemes, and phonemes (Chapter 21).

You can save $3.74 if you use Discount/Coupon Code: SGYP38JT at Checkout. You pay only $ 21.21 for the great How To Tutor!! Hurry! How To Tutor, by famed writer Samuel L. Blumenfeld, first available 38 years ago has without change, continued to be an outstanding resource to teach the Three R's. It has not changed because it works so well. Its methodology is timeless!! It is a whole school in one book for only $ 29.95. Its three parts are (1) Sam Blumenfeld's amazingly easy to teach systematic, intensive phonics READING instruction program. (2) His effective CURSIVE HANDWRITING program and (3) his equally effective ARITHMETIC PROGRAM. Has been used by 100,000's parents, teachers and tutors. Mary Pride, leading homeschooling materials reviewer, calls it a best value. 298 pages. How To Tutor works at ALL ages. Anyone who can read can teach the 3 R's with it. WHY IS HOW TO TUTOR IMPORTANT? Dr. Blumenfeld warns: Most parents wait until their child is having difficulty at school before they think of providing remediation. Sometimes the child is so far behind, so confused, so frustrated by not learning in the first two grades, that the remedial program looks long and difficult. However, proper tutoring at the preschool level or in the first two grades, as a preventive measure, can make sure that the child has the foundation on which to build achievement. How To Tutor provides parents and teachers with a complete instructional program: step-by-step lesson plans in the Three R's. It originally was to help public school students. Since then the continued decline in many public schools made HOMESCHOOLING much more important. Homeschool families discovered what a gem this book is for them. HERE ARE THE THREE SECTIONS: PART (1) READING: The big problem in schooling today. How To Tutor shows how to avoid the confusion in teaching reading that prevails in our schools today. 117 complete lessons. Contains everything you need to teach your student to be a top reader. You learn the dirty little secret professional educators keep from you: It is really EASY TO TEACH READING! There are only 44 sounds (Phonograms) you need to teach your student to build a high level of reading skill. PART (2) CURSIVE HANDWRITING: Many Parents and Grandparents today are often shocked to learn that in many schools cursive is not taught. With How To Tutor you are given all the tools you need to teach this important skill with ease. Here is another little secret: Cursive can be taught BEFORE printing (ball & stick). There are only THREE basic strokes involved in cursive handwriting. Most children can learn these at a surprisingly early age. Learning about this will amaze you. 73 complete lessons. PART (3) ARITHMETIC: Quoting Dr. Blumenfeld: In teaching arithmetic it is important to convey the genius of the system itself. Next to the alphabet, it is the greatest mental tool ever devised by man. We should approach the subject with the excitement it deserves. Any teacher who makes arithmetic dull does so because he does not understand its beautiful simplicity, logic and facility which permit us to do so much with so little. HTT Arithmetic covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, weights, time, and the calendar. Everything up to just before geometry and algebra. All this in 67 easy lessons. FINAL WORD: Anyone can use these lesson plans: Students, Parents, Teachers, Tutors, Retired Teachers, Housewives and Grandparents. Tutoring can be a good way to earn extra money while aiding people who need help to improve their reading, handwriting and arithmetic ability. Some of the claims we make may appear unbelievable. They are TRUE. We have heard from countless users who cannot say enough about HTT's simplicity and effectiveness. See for yourself. Money back guarantee. HTT also available at Amazon in: How To Tutor eBook - CD ROM version (ISBN 9780941995474- $ 17.95).
