Who It’s For: Teachers/Learners of English & Reading in a Hurry to Cover What’s Essential
Why You Need It: Complete coverage of all there is to know” about the English/Roman alphabet and world writing systems would be a daunting, time-consuming process!

Get a rationale for teaching/learning an alphabet, with a list of 9 most basic learning activities and games designed for this purpose.
Follow the general instructions for alphabet lessons (preparation, presentation, practice, assessment, follow-up)—and motivating cooperative/competitive games.
Apply these principles and steps whenever practical. Go beyond these ideas in whatever directions your interests carry you.
