I had the privilege of listening to Dr Misty Adoniou (Associate Professor in Language, Literacy and Teaching, English as a Second Language, University of Canberra) address the role of analytical and synthetic phonics in learning to read and write. She was an inspirational speaker who reminded us that ‘sounding out’ words is such a small part of reading. (Refer to a previous post Reading Is About Meaning.)
Dr Misty Adoniou wrote the following articles. They explain much of the information that she shared during her presentation.
