Phonics Reading Decoding – collection of research, blogs and articles

This is supposed to be a collection of articles, blogs and research on the best way to teach reading.

I lean towards a balanced reading approach with phonics at the core. I do not agree with the year 1 phonics test and think it is having a negative impact on oral language In classrooms.

Has decoding improved but at the expense of comprehension?

I believe phonics was being taught in classrooms more and more as the research emerged. The phonics test has created a crude and heavy handed approach to the teaching of reading instead of a more nuanced and intellectual model. But that’s just my opinion – what do I know?

Many teachers are looking for literature on phonics and reading to make their own decisions. This is a small library of what I have found so far… 

This is breaking news: (March 2015) – we can recognise familar words as whole.

 This, by @jellyandbean1 is the most amazing collection:

And @susangodsland has an impressive list too: (not quite sure why it’s called dyslexics though as Susan doesn’t believe it exists)önköping.pptx
