    Uncovering the Logic of English ...

    $55.00

    Uncovering the Logic of English helps educators break the complex code of English with simple rules. 

    Award-winning author Denise Eide demonstrates the effectiveness of systematic phonics to develop a transformed understanding of high-frequency words, sight words, decodable words, and irregular words.

    Written in an engaging and easy-to-follow style, Uncovering the Logic of English sheds light on our society’s literacy crisis and provides a wealth of reading and spelling tools to help any student succeed. 

    This book is suitable for teachers looking to expand their reading curriculum, adults struggling with spelling, English Language Learners who want to improve their pronunciation, and parents teaching their children at home.

    Uncovering the Logic of English challenges the notion that English is illogical by revealing the logical patterns underlying 98% of English words and explaining: 

    • 75 phonograms and 31 spelling rules that can be used to explain 98% of English words
    • How English words are formed and how this knowledge can revolutionize vocabulary development
    • That understanding the reasons behind English spelling prevents students from needing to guess

    Grounded in the latest linguistic and reading research, Uncovering the Logic of English demonstrates why the phonogram approach, with accurate spelling rules, should be as foundational to our education system as 1 + 1 = 2.

    But what if the problem is not the language itself, but the rules we were taught? What if we could see the complexity of English as a powerful tool rather than a hindrance?  Denise Eide

    Uncovering the Logic of English introduces the phonograms and rules that are taught in the Logic of English® Foundations and Essentials series.
