Phonemic Awareness and Writing: Overrated for Learning To Read?
Phonemic awareness and writing are thought to be important contributors to a child's success with reading. However, studies of "exceptional" children have shown contrary results. The Knowledge Sources theory is used to explain these results with regard to explicit and implicit generation procedures that have their source in the child's reading vocabulary and diverse instructional approaches. Phonemic Awareness appears to be necessary for spelling/writing, but it does not appear to be necessary for learning to read. Contains 33 references. (Author/RS)
