EDU 371: Phonics Based Reading & Decoding week 3 DQ 2


Building Words


Read Chapter 10: Building Words (pp. 155-169) and Chapter 11: Word Banks and Word Sorts (pp. 170-184). You might also want to read this web article by Timothy Rasinski entitled, Making and Writing Words.

In this discussion posting:

Explain how the “Making Words” program described in Chapter 10, or how Word Banks or Word Sorts as described in Chapter 11 utilize the principles of constructivism which is briefly defined on page 155.



Describe at least two other ways you will use constructivism in your classroom to teach reading. Lastly, explain why it is important to employ constructivist principles when teaching reading, especially beginning reading.  

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your discussion.  




Please make sure to refer to chapter 10 and 11. I have attached the chapter as a docx. Rubric Scoring sheet is also attached. Please follow that. :)
