Teaching Models in Education of the Gifted – Third Edition

C. June Maker & Shirley W. Schiever

This book comprehensively reviews teaching-learning models that can be used in the development and implementation of a curriculum for gifted students. The second edition reflects the many changes that have occurred in gifted education. The field of gifted education has seen new program models developed, more research accomplished, and new materials published. This book examines these changes.

Teaching Models in Education of the Gifted supplies valuable information to teachers, prospective teachers, program coordinators, and curriculum development specialists. It will enable them to:

Assess critically the match of the assumptions in a model with their own philosophies

  1. Evaluate the validity of a model for the purpose for which they intend to employ it
  2. Apply the model appropriately in any situation
  3. Implement the model with gifted students

Because of its focus on implementation, the book provides many examples of the use of different models with gifted students of various ages.

LiPS: The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech — Fourth Edition, Complete Kit

Phonological Awareness and Sequencing Stories
By Sylvia Hannah LiPS: The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech — Fourth Edition, Complete Kit -Our Price: $601.00

The LiPS: Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech — Fourth Edition is a comprehensive multisensory program that uses explicit, systematic instruction to develop phonological awareness, decoding, spelling, and reading skills. The goal of LiPS is to develop fluent readers and competent spellers. The LiPS Program steps are: Setting the Climate for Learning, Identifying and Classifying Consonants, Identifying and Classifying Vowels, Tracking Simple Syllables and Words, Basic Spelling and Reading, Learning Sight Words and Expectancies, Tracking Complex Syllables and Words, Multisyllabic Words, and Reading and Writing in Context. To teach sound–letter associations, the LiPS tasks progress from articulatory movement to sound, then to letter. Through guided discovery techniques, students explore the physical movements involved in producing sounds and learn to hear, see, and feel the physical characteristics of sounds. This in-depth knowledge leads to the student’s ability to understand how words are constructed and to self-correct—essential skills for independent reading and spelling.

For more than 40 years, the  LiPS program has successfully addressed the reading difficulties of a wide range of individuals, including students with functional speech-language delay, second language learning, dyslexia, autism, apraxia, pervasive developmental delay, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. The program’s use with students in grades K-3 has been shown to significantly reduce the need for remedial reading instruction. LiPS can be used with individuals, small groups, and classrooms. It can be used with all ages, from preschool to adult.

LiPS Manual with DVDs

The revised Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech — Fourth Edition Manual provides theoretical foundations and a detailed description of the LiPS Program steps. The main parts of the manual include: introduction to the Program, identifying and classifying speech sounds by place and manner of articulation, simple syllables and words, complex syllables and words, spelling, and reading, multisyllable words, and reading for comprehension and spelling in context. The manual includes outlines and sample dialogue to help students develop phonemic awareness and abilities in reading and spelling. Two DVDs accompany the manual and include extensive dialogues, chains and word lists, frequently asked questions, and audio and video examples.

The LiPS Stick, a flash drive containing a broad collection of the digital versions of the manipulatives and reproducible resources, is a valuable and cost-effective resource! The LiPS Stick contains vowel circle mats, small colored squares, large colored squares, letter cards, large and small mouth pictures, syllable cards, and all manipulatives in JPEG files for easy use with electronic interactive boards. With the LiPS Stick, you can reproduce instructional tools and make unlimited sets of manipulatives for your students’ use at home, in the clinic, and at school

The eight book set of the PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS AND SEQUENCING STORESS (PAS) is now integrated into the LiPS Program. These 42 appealing stories, organized into eight chapter books, follow the Vertical Path of sound introduction and have engaging illustrations to give the students opportunities to practice successful reading. A separate teachers guide is available.
