If this style of education seems archaic, it is. But the scary thing is that things have not changed.
There are, of course, a scattering of innovative teachers in the system who push struggling students, extend advanced students and find time to be with the 'under-the-radar' students. These teachers differentiate learning, give quality feedback, use innovative ICT and content delivery techniques such as flip learning and generally understand that no student is the same. The sad truth is that these teachers ...

What does passionate teaching look like? Personally, I think it is a calling. Teaching is something you pour your heart and soul into. You care and you admire. Teaching should be a fun and colourful. Your students should love learning.

To put it simply, phonics is the method of teaching children to read, which focuses on the individual sounds of letters, or groups of letters, and blending them together. A word is broken down and sounded out (decoded), and then blended together to reveal what the word says.
Advantages Of Phonics

• Phonics equips readers with a strategy to sound out unfamiliar words.
• It helps children to develop spelling skills, and cuts down on them guessing at a word when attempting to read it.

In this approach, a word is perceived as a whole unit, without analysis of its subword parts. Young readers are encouraged to recognise the whole word, rather than sound out the individual letters ...
