J. Lloyd Eldredge is a professor in the College of Education at Brigham Young University. He teaches both graduate and undergraduate literacy courses. Dr. Eldredge is a former elementary school teacher, school principal, and school superintendent. He has also served as the Utah Director of Chapter I, the Utah Director of Early Childhood Education, and the Utah Director of Elementary Education.
His interests are in literacy education and motivation. He was one of the first educators to implement and research "whole language" practices in the public schools. The editors of The Reading Teacher acknowledge his article on "alternatives to traditional reading instruction" as the first "whole language" article published in that journal. However, his work has been focused on keeping literacy instruction balanced so children can both learn about the written language and use it in meaningful ways. During the past 21 years he has focused his research on phonemic awareness, a reconceptualization of decoding instruction in the early years of schooling, holistic teaching practices, oral reading, fluency, and the effects of various forms of "assisted reading" strategies (dyad reading, group assisted reading, and taped assisted reading) on young and "at-risk" readers. His work has been published in many journals, including Journal of Educational Research, Reading Research and Instruction, Journal of Reading, The Reading Teacher, and Reading Research Quarterly.From the Back Cover:
Teach Decoding: Why and How is an excellent resource for preservice and inservice teachers who need a text that clearly outlines how to teach decoding skills so that children can apply them. Based on the work of Jeanne Chall, Isabelle Liberman, Keith Stanovich, L. C. Ehri, and many others, Dr. J. Lloyd Eldredge details in his book why phonics knowledge is so important in decoding and why decoding abilities are so vital in the reading process.Other benefits this book offers readers:
