Interview with Maureen Pollard: 'Teaching and using decodable text'

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Sat Sep 30, 2017 6:09 pm

Maureen Pollard resides in Australia and is author of the fabulous 'Little Learners Love Literacy' series of decodable books. This interview with Maureen is so very straightforward and sensible that I decided to add it to our 'General Forum' for general benefit:

Teaching and using decodable text

Jo Earp

Maureen Pollard – literacy consultant, educator and author of the Little Learners Love Literacy series - sits down with Teacher for a Q&A on decodable text.

What is decodable text? ... ent=social

'The look on children’s faces when they realise how easy reading is - knowing the sounds and connecting them to graphemes on the page. I call decodable text the ‘no tricks books’. They are so simple to use for both teachers, parents and children and importantly decodable text is supported by evidence-based research [from the US, the UK, and the National Inquiry into Teaching of Literacy in Australia].’
