Helping children struggling to read

Discussion in 'Primary' started by ReadingRevival, Oct 12, 2011.

  1. Could I ask primary teachers how they'd feel about using a non-phonics based reading scheme with children who are failing to keep up with their classmates when learning to read, to halt the nosedive into illiteracy as the gap widened between them and their peers?

    IMHO, only if a really good thorough course of synthetic phonics, well delivered with interesting decodable readers, multisensory, giving more time to children who need overlearning, working with the parents so it is reinforced at home if possible etc etc, had genuinely failed. Why do you ask?
