Times Educational Supplement Star Read!

'This is an authoritative yet lively and eminently readable book. It is well grounded in both the latest academic theory and experienced hands-on pedagogic practice, and it summarises succinctly the implications of the recent Rose Report, giving a masterly exposition of both synthetic and analytic phonics and their places in the processes of learning to read and spell.

Practical and organisational issues are tackled in a most supportive way, with very useful checklists and photocopiable proformas on an accompanying CD.

The book also provides and excellent guide to provision for professional development, involving the use of lesson observation and part of the evaluation and planning cycle for CPD. Its style is clear and well signposted with subheadings, case-study boxes to illuminate points, and with aims given at the start of each chapter as well as challenging points for reflection and guides to further reading at the ends.

Every staff room should have one!' - Dorothy Latham, Primary Education Consultant, English specialist and author of How Children Learn to Write

'Synthetic phonics may well be only one tool for teaching reading and spelling, but it is the single most important one' - Ruth Kelly, Education Secretary, March 2006

'Teachers - and particularly Literacy Co-ordinators or SENCOs - who are enthusiastic about children's learning and about their own professional development will undoubtedly benefit from using this book and CD, with its combination of useful explanation and practical resources to support the implementation of the ideas' - Lorna Gardiner, General Adviser, Foundation Stage, North Eastern Education and Library Board, Northern Ireland

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
