Phonics Instructional Strategies
There are several different types of phonics instruction, and they are not all equal.
- Synthetic phonics
- Students are taught the individual sounds and then once the sounds are learned, they blend them to make words that they know and have heard.
- Analytic phonics
- Students are first taught the whole word, then they are taught how to break it down into its parts
- Implicit Method
- Students are first taught the whole word, they look at the beginning and ending sounds, and use context clues to help them determine the new word
- Explicit Method (most effective)
- Students are taught strategies that can be used to decipher new words
