This teleseminar recording will give you details of when phonics is not enough. There are 4 elements to literacy – the sound of the word, the meaning, the picture/image and being in an effective learning state. Literacy is generally taught through the sound of the word or phonemes plus the meaning. Seeing the word on the page does not automatically create a mental image of the word; in fact from our experience only about 50% of people progress from the sound of the word to holding the mental image of the word in their mind’s eye. In addition if you are not in an effective learning state (calm body and alert mind) you are not going to find it easy to remember any new word.For effective literacy you need all these 4 elements together.
Phonics is good for those who think in small pieces and build up a bigger picture. But for those big picture thinkers who are creative, imaginative and can for example put lego or flat-pack furniture together without the instructions they need to start with the big picture which is a whole word for literacy.
Join Olive Hickmott and Sara Haboubi discussing these topics and learn how you can help the struggling 20% right now.
