#006 (Part 1) The 90 Minute Literacy Block – What a ‘Sound’ Phonics Program Looks Like

Episode 6 unpacks the quality teaching strategies needed in a 90 minute literacy block, using research based strategies that accelerate literacy learning for all students.

There are two camps of thought when it comes to defining phonics and the one you choose will determine the underlying philosophy of the way you teach a child to read.

The difference is subtle, almost non observable to most teachers. The real difference will be observed in how well your students, especially your more vulnerable learners, launch into their literacy journeys.

So what are the two camps of thought?

Find out in this episode!

In this podcast, I’m going to break down what a 90min literacy lesson looks like teaching a single phoneme/sound to your students.

The plan I outline adopts a multi-sensory pedagogical approach with a mixture of small group rotations and hands on/physical games, making it suitable for all learners with multiple intelligences. This is especially important for children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Dyslexic learners typically struggle with auditory and/or visual processing and they really benefit from hands-on, whole body learning.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
