Reading better with phonics

Teacher Insights

A study done by the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and the Murdoch Children's Research Institute found that intensive phonics-based targeted reading intervention improves the ability of students to learn and retain the foundational skills required for reading. A study was done in New South Wales with 232 Grade I studies who were found to be requiring additional support for reading. They were split into two groups- one group was given conventional training while the other group was given MiniLit program developed by a private group that is phonics-based. It was found that the MiniLit group had better foundational skills required for reading compared to their peers who received the usual classroom instructions.
