This section focuses on what’s needed in order for readers to decode written text. It looks at:

  • concepts about print
  • identifying letters by name, and providing sounds for each letter
  • assessing and teaching decoding
  • the importance of sight words in developing fluency

Section C looked at phonological awareness. As you work through this section, reflect on how this awareness, particularly phonemic awareness, supports readers to decode.
