Teach a Student to Read (TASTR) is not a phonics book. Phonics is a method of teaching reading that posits that sounds correlate with graphemes in an alphabetic writing system. Phonics assumes letters represent speech sounds. Letters can spell sounds, but not all letters spell sounds. Some letters are markers. Other letters are zeroed. TASTR strives to teach fully and accurately about the English writing system to give a new reader the information needed to read and understand the spelling of any English word.

TASTR is currently available for purchase on Amazon.
