Summary Note "This review of research about the role of teaching phonics in learning to read initially briefly considers some of the most powerful and well established predictors for success in learning to read. These predictors include the development of oral language with parents and caregivers, shared reading and access to a range of reading in the home and preschool. It then focuses on developing an understanding of the background to and rationale for the focus on synthetic phonics in early reading in England, and more recently the suggestion that Australia might introduce a synthetics phonics check for all six-year-olds. Contemporary research about phonics - synthetic and analytic - and the role it plays in learning to read is then considered alongside other strategies. It appears that actions already taken in England by the government to change the national curriculum in line with the recommendations of the Rose Report (2006) were premature and this change in reading pedagogy has not yet been validated by research. This review concludes that the costly introduction of a 'phonics check' for all Australian six-year-old children is not supported by research." - Abstract, p. 4.
