Jolly Phonics: American English Version
Jolly Phonics: using synthetic phonics to ensure that all children learn to read.
This self-paced on-line course examines the processes children go through when learning to read and write and shows how phonic knowledge is integral to these processes. Through this course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the synthetic-phonics approach and will learn how best to apply this knowledge in the classroom. The course also includes a number of useful teaching resources and demonstrates how they can be used to facilitate the children’s learning. The final part of the course examines the findings of recent studies, which confirm the importance of phonics in the teaching of reading.
The on-line format of the course enables you to study whenever and wherever you wish. Content is divided into five modules. You may complete these modules in any order, but you must complete all five within three months.
