Myths about phonics

I've found a nice 13 minute video on the internet from the UK Reading Reform Foundation Conference 2011, in which experienced teacher Elizabeth Nonweiler answers the following questions:

  • Do we need a range of strategies for teaching reading or does one size fit all?
  • Can phonics be fun?
  • What about reading for meaning?
  • What about a rich literacy curriculum?
  • Is there a danger that phonics will put children off reading?

Worth a look, IMHO. Here it is.
