By revealing answers to our questions about the way words are spelled, Uncovering the Logic of English transforms the reader's understanding of English from a language riddled with exceptions to a complex code which it is possible to master. This title is invaluable to parents, teachers, and anyone who desire to improve their reading and spelling abilities.
Multiple award-winning book on reading and spelling education that will transform how you think about English! Do you know a student who is good at math or science but struggles with reading or spelling? Has a student ever asked you a question about English spelling to which you replied, "That's an exception"? Have you ever abandoned a word while writing because the spell-checker didn't recognize it? Discover this revolutionary method that Dr. Temple Grandin called "really helpful for teaching reading to children who are mathematical pattern thinkers..." Predominant reading methods require students to break the complex code of English without help. This has resulted in low literacy rates and explains why many highly educated professionals cannot spell. By revealing the logical patterns underlying 98% of English words, Uncovering the Logic of English eliminates the need to guess and provides a logical solution to English spelling. Simple answers are given for questions such as: "Why is there a silent final E in have?" "Why don't we drop the E in noticeable?" "Why is discussion spelled with -sion rather than -tion?" As the rules unfold it becomes apparent how this knowledge is vital to reversing the educational crisis that is plaguing America. This slim volume is easy to read and accessible to parents and classroom teachers. A thorough appendix summarizes the most important concepts for quick reference.Awards: ForeWord Reviews - Finalist Midwest Book Awards - Winner Independent Publisher Book Awards - Silver Medalist 2011 Indie Excellence Awards - Gold Medalist 2011 Benjamin Franklin Awards - Finalist 2012

I always thought English never had any all-encompassing rules or logic, I thought that it was just a weird hodge-podge of languages, and always told new English learners to just learn it and not ask why. This book shows the importance of learning the complete phonetic rules of English and how they can make everyone a competent reader and speller. I recommend it to any school- or ESL-teachers.

Great summary of the "secret" rules to spelling English. Seems insightful.
