Rosen: To the Point - Do you read me?

Post by Susan Godsland » Mon Jan 28, 2013 4:35 pm

Latest anti-synthetic phonics article from Rosen ... orldUpdate
So, the question that I and others ask is: how can children being taught by first, fast and only synthetic phonics learn how to read for meaning? Some phonics enthusiasts say that children just pick it up: they match the language they know from their talk among family members, teachers and friends with the language they are reading. Of course this leaves out those children who are not speaking English at home and, as in some cases, not very much in the playground either.
