Seeing Stars: Symbol Imagery for Phonological and Orthographic Processing in Reading and Spelling
The Seeing Stars® Teacher's Manual is newly revised and expanded! The manual details the theory and specific steps of the Seeing Stars® program. You will learn how to develop students' symbol imagery for phonological and orthographic processing in reading and spelling. Research-validated symbol imagery, a sensory-cognitive, necessary component for reading and spelling, improves word attack, word recognition, spelling, and contextual reading fluency and accuracy.
Visualizing and Verbalizing: For Language Comprehension and Thinking
This manual provides the theory and specific steps to develop concept imagery, the ability to image a gestalt (whole) from language. It describes the important questioning techniques that stimulate mental imagery, so the teacher can learn to help students visualize language and verbalize what they have imaged. This imagery-language connection is essential for oral and written language comprehension, as well as critical thinking. The manual includes sample lessons, step summaries, illustrations, and useful tips for implementing instruction.
