Teaching Reading: Why the "Fab Five" Should Be the "Big Six"
Konza, Deslea
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v39 n12 Article 10 Dec 2014
The Report of the National Reading Panel (NICHD, 2000) identified five key elements that were critical to the development of reading, and these have been widely accepted by educational jurisdictions as providing definitive guidelines for early reading instruction. This paper presents a case for the inclusion of oral language and early literacy experiences as an additional and foundational element. The pervasive influence of a child's early experiences on future reading achievement must be understood if teachers are to maximise the opportunities of all children to become independent readers.
