What You Need to Know to Teach Reading, ESL, Spelling, Phonics, and Grammar by David E. Freeman — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists. I read this book for a college course on Linguistics for future English teachers. Though I enjoyed the side- by- side comparisons of the word recognition view and the sociopsycholinguistics view in each chapter, the fact that it was heavily in favor of the second was apparent. I would have enjoyed a less biased viewpoint for, in my opinion, both have merits. I also have difficulty visualizing the application of the sociopsycholinguistic methodology in the lower grades like Kindergarten or first grade. An appendix or electronic companion featuring lesson plan ideas or, better yet, videos of teachers who are implementing these techniques may be helpful for teachers who are unfamiliar with them and hesitant to try them.
The authors and/or editors should consider this for future editions.
