  • Study of the Effects of Synthetic Phonics and Systematic Spelling Teaching

    SPELD(SA) have published an interim report on their on-going study into the effects of a synthetic phonics and systematic spelling and grammar program on children’s reading and spelling skills.

    In 2010, SPELD(SA) commenced a 13-year study to investigate what effect the systematic teaching of synthetic phonics, and a systematic spelling and grammar program had on students in the first three years of school.   This study is being carried out on students who are being taught to read, write, and spell using Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar.

    In their conclusion, Weeks and Ozols report that: “By the end of their second year of formal schooling, students in this study, aged between 6 years 5 months and 8 years 2 months (average age 7 years 1 month), had made a very strong start with the development of their reading and spelling skills. The average gain in reading (14 months above chronological age) and spelling (17.7 months above chronological age) is greater than that of the students in the Clackmannanshire study whose reading and spelling scores were 11 months above chronological age at the end of their second year at school. ” (p.9)

    This is only the beginning of a comprehensive study but the results do show that good synthetic phonics and systematic grammar teaching with the right products can make a difference in any school.

    If you would like to read the full interim report, then you can download it here.

    For more research on the effectiveness of synthetic phonics teaching, including the original Clackmannanshire studies mentioned above, please visit this page.
