This thesis is a case study of a first grade student in Milwaukee, Wisconsin who struggled with his writing skills. The researcher developed and carried out an intervention for the student, with a foundation of literature from expert researchers. This researcher met with the student three times per week over the course of eight weeks, for between fifteen and thirty minutes per session when the researcher employed the use of strategic phonological awareness teaching methods with the student. In each intervention session, the researcher employed an array of specific phonological teaching methods and asked the student to create a writing piece either prompted or of the writer’s choice. The student used the phonological teaching strategies taught during the intervention to complete his writing. At the conclusion of the study, the first grade student’s phonological strategies showed improvement, thereby, impacting his writing skills based on the phonological awareness ELA Literacy Mastery Test, and his writing rubric results.
