What teaching method was used for reading in the mid 70's?
We were given these "special" books in which you were to sound out the words in order to read. I do remember that everything was misspelled and was a kind of phonics program. Does anybody remember what this style of teaching was or understand what I am talking about. I to this day HATE reading and really feel cheated. This all came up recently because I have a daughter who is learning to read and I JUST NOW figured out that all long vowels sounds are the same sound as the letters name. I am in my 40's for goodness sake!!!! I was so neglected as a young student.
