A text-based approach to teaching phonics presented by Dr Leonie Arthur and Dr Margery Hertzberg
For early career teachers working in the foundation year or early years of school, and teachers of students who are EAL/D learners. This practical workshop will focus on the use of authentic texts to teach phonics in the early years of school.
It will demonstrate strategies for planning engaging, culturally responsive teaching and learning sequences that support each student’s development of phonics skills and vocabulary knowledge in a meaningful context. Examples of whole class and small group interactive experiences that enable students to explore and respond to texts, strengthen understandings of letter-sound relationships and use language for a range of purposes will also be included.
Research indicates that the most effective literacy teaching integrates the teaching of decoding skills with the meaningful use of literacy for a range of purposes (Hall, 2013).
