Here we go again: Fact checking the anti-phonics movement in Education
http://pamelasnow.blogspot.co.uk/2018/0 ... -anti.html
This week, on the Australian Association for Education in Research (AARE) Blog, Professor Robyn Ewing of the University of Sydney asserts that there are "seven things teachers agree on" about the teaching of reading. As far as evidence-based claims go, this is one of education's more journalistic flourishes. There is no substantiation at all provided for this grandiose claim, but that it is the least of the article's evidence-based problems.
Thank goodness Pam takes the time and goes to the trouble of addressing such spurious articles.
