Phonics: The Key to Strong Reading Skills
Over 180 research studies to date have proven that phonics is the BEST WAY to teach reading to all students. These studies also show that intensified phonics is the ONLY WAY to teach reading to students with learning disabilities.
Unfortunately, 80% of our nations schools do not use an intensified phonics approach for reading instruction. They either use the whole word (see & say) approach or a cursory use of phonics along with the whole word method.
While most people can learn to read using the whole word approach, it is not the best way to learn. It teaches through memorization of word pictures and guessing. Unlike Chinese or Japanese which are picture languages, the English language is a phonetic language. With the exception of the United States which dropped phonics in the 1930's, all other countries that have a phonetic language, teach reading through phonics.
There are only 44 sounds while there are about 1 million words in English. These facts readily explain why having to memorize 44 sounds as opposed to memorizing hundreds of thousands of words is the most efficient way to learn to read.
Reading and writing is simply "talking on paper." Children learn to talk by imitating sounds and then combining the sounds to form words. The brain is programmed to learn language in this fashion. Therefore, the most efficient way to learn to read is through phonics because it teaches children to read the same way they learned to talk.
Children and adults with reading problems often have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Below grade level reading achievement
- Slow reading
- Poor comprehension
- Experience anxiety over reading in front of others
- Experience fatigue after reading only for a short while
- Poor spelling skills
- Struggle with school assignments that require reading
- Constantly need to re-read to understand the meaning
- Lack of enjoyment from reading
