Syntax is Essential—Even for Beginning Readers

Now in Print! Syntax: Knowledge to Practice 

This lesson is based on the "Meaning Links—Pronouns" activities (Stages 0-2) in Syntax: Knowledge to Practice.

Now in Print!  Syntax: Knowledge to Practice

Syntax, a linguist's word for sentences, is foundational for reading comprehension.  Understanding how sentences work—their components and structure—is the focus of Syntax: Knowledge to Practice.  Building on their oral language abilities, beginning readers need to learn how sentence-level skills help them understand (i.e., comprehend) and create (i.e., compose) written language. Empowered with this ability, novice readers can move beyond their code-breaking skills to understand and appreciate what they read—the ultimate goal of reading. Available in print ($34.99) or electronically ($9.99).
