Aus: URGENT - please sign the petition to support the phonics check

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Sat Nov 04, 2017 12:00 pm

Please support Australia to raise awareness about the need for effective, systematic phonics teaching. The petition takes seconds to sign:

A national, indeed a universal, phonics check is the quickest and most important way of raising teachers' awareness for their Continuing Professional Development.

Teachers need to know just what is possible. Some schools in England teach 100% of their children to reach or exceed the benchmark in the phonics check year after year - that is, cohort after cohort.

All teachers need to know that this is possible, then they need to know 'how' to achieve this.
