Dr Jennifer Buckingham, Aus, calls for use of the phonics ch

Post by Debbie Hepplewhite » Sun Nov 27, 2016 10:38 pm

I think this is very important news indeed - Dr Jennifer Buckingham has written an excellent report recommending the use of a phonics check in Australia.

The International Foundation for Effective Reading Instruction promotes the use of England's Year One Phonics Screening Check worldwide so this is certainly a very interesting, and very important, development in Australia - supported by Minister Simon Birmingham.

You can read Jennifer's fantastic report - and some of the inevitable responses from phonics detractors - via this thread at the IFERI site:
