"I love the fact that Strategies by the Numbers is based on the connectionist research model, which views spelling and reading as a 'dynamic interplay of phonological, orthographic, and semantic knowledge.' Consequently, the strategies in this book focus on simultaneously developing and strengthening phonological, orthographic, semantic and morphological knowledge during reading and writing tasks."
