I am thrilled to be speaking with Dr. Pete Bowers a researcher and literacy consultant.  Pete educates teachers, practitioners, and students around the globe with understanding the spelling-meaning connection of the English language through the approach of scientific inquiry. He calls this instructional approach, "structured word inquiry."  Watch this same content on YouTube:
