Cathie Zelas's insight:

An excellent article that has similar views to Tunmer and Chapman but from an Australian perspective. Outlines the "5 big ideas" research shows are necessary componants of early reading programmes: 

phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary
and comprehension. The authors state,

"Reading instruction that incorporates the five big
ideas and teaches them in an explicit and systematic
way is effective for all children....

Although phonics is only one part of a
comprehensive reading program, it warrants
special attention. ...

The research literature shows that phonics is most
effectively taught by the ‘synthetic’ approach—a 

highly structured, sequential and explicit method
that teaches beginning and remedial readers how
to construct words from the smallest language
‘building blocks’ of letters and letter combinations,
and their corresponding sounds.21 Implicit or
incidental teaching of phonics is not effective
evidence-based reading instruction." (p3-4)
