In the 1970s, two approaches were developed to deal with the deficiencies in the authentic literacy pedagogy: functional pedagogy and critical literacies pedagogy (Locke, 2010). These pedagogies developed out of a belief that literacy pedagogy could bring about change to social inequalities.

I have taken some classes on writing and have improved my writing drastically over the years. As with everything, there is plenty to improve on.

Now I find myself proofreading, editing and grammar checking which help me in my pursuit going

The word study pedagogy has been the center of controversy in early reading instruction and fluency. Some of the major concepts of beginning word study are providing balance literacy instructions through phonological awareness, associating sounds, word recognitions and decoding skills necessary for reading. Students learn how to make connections with new information by activating prior knowledge further increasing their comprehension and retention of information.

Phonemic awareness is reading education, yet does not involve words in print.
