Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Literacy: A Redefinition
Written By: Anthony Baratta
Nancy Ellsworth
Carolyn Hedley

The concepts of the past, centered on traditional ways of learning to read and write, no longer suffice in a society that requires higher level skills. This volume offers a revitalized perspective of literacy, focusing on the forms that literacy will take in the future, the influence of changing technologies and multimedia on curriculum and instructional practices, and on effective learning environments.
