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)
IT shouldn't surprise that the University of Wollongong's Brian Cambourne is critical of Jennifer Buckingham's argument that for far too long teaching phonics and phonemic awareness has been absent from the nation's classrooms.
