Learning the Code by Barbara R. Foorman
This chapter is about how English-speaking children learn to encode and decode their written language, that is, their alphabetic orthography. With the learning loss and growing achievement gap during the COVID-19 pandemic, this topic is highly significant in spite of decades of research and consensus reports documenting the compelling evidence for explicit and systematic teaching of the alphabetic code.
