Literature review - Effective reading instruction in the early years of school

effect read

Reading is a foundational, yet complex cognitive skill upon which other skills are built. Research on the teaching of reading in the early years of school has consistently identified five key components of effective reading programs: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This paper summarises the research regarding why these five elements are important, as well as how they should be taught in the classroom.
