Abstract

In this article, we explore recent research about phonics teaching, the interdependent skills needed to access phonics teaching, and consider synergies between the findings from these studies and Reading Recoveryâ teaching procedures. First, we set the scene by discussing definitions and raise some issues regarding the efficacy of different ways of teaching phonics, particularly in relation to Reading Recovery. Next, we review some recent research about the role of phonics in learning to read and how it fits with Reading Recovery teaching procedures. Two of these studies were conducted in the context of Reading Recovery. Finally, given that it has been established that successful integration of Reading Recovery in a school (May, Sirinides, Gray, & Goldsworthy, 2016) demands a collective understanding of the pedagogy of Reading Recovery, we consider some of the current challenges in aligning classroom teaching of phonics and Reading Recovery. We hope that providing a broad overview of the issues will facilitate better professional conversations about the principles and practices of Reading Recovery and build collective understanding of the role of phonics in learning to read.
