With this work, educators should help students from pre-kindergarten to middle school and beyond learn to read and spell accurately - and they'll get a refresher course on language skills and structure so they can teach students with confidence. Designed for pre-service and in-service general and special educators, the text offers a range of teaching strategies that integrate two interlocking skills - decoding and spelling. Teachers will: sharpen their knowledge of three basic concepts for decoding words and spelling them - letter-sound correspondences, syllable patterns, and morpheme patterns; expand students' literacy skills and knowledge by increasing their awareness and understanding of the origins of English words, affixes, roots and combining forms, multi-syllabic words, and abstract concepts; and begin formal reading and writing instruction by teaching students to identify, understand and use common consonant and vowel patterns, syllables, common spelling rules, prefixes and suffixes, roots, non-phonetic words, and contractions.

Access to Academics: Planning Instruction for K-12 Classrooms with ELLs takes a different look at language than most other books – it addresses it as something students must use constantly, in a variety of school venues and in different ways depending on the context. The book shows language as vital to content access and thereby academic achievement, but, more importantly, it also provides step-by-step instructions explaining how to help students acquire the language they need. Although the main emphasis is on English language learners (ELLs), the term “diverse learners” used throughout also encompasses the great variety in any classroom of student backgrounds, abilities, needs, and interests.
