Phonics and the SPHERIC Teaching Method

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 1 February 2009 - 1:30pm
Cadmus Kyrala

SPHERIC stands for Synthetic PHonics, Engaged Reading, and Integrated Communication. This presentation will explain how synthetic phonics can be used as the center of a fully-integrated communicative teaching method in line with the current theoretical and research consensus. Specifically addressed will be recommendations on how to teach elementary school-aged children. Examples will be drawn from experiences teaching in the Nagahama Elemenatry School English Program (NESEP). Although the model is designed for use in Japanese public schools, the method is flexible enough to be applied to a variety of contexts.
