Whole Language Approach vs. Code/phonics Approach

to Literacy Instruction

Whole language approach

  • is being taught in our schools today

  • is the primary cause of the reading crisis in Canada, United States and around the world 

  • is teaching reading without breaking the English language down into its parts

  • presumes that children will learn to read naturally through exposure to literature

  • has a minimal, incidental or no instruction at all to learn how to read and spell

  • instructs children to look at the pictures of a children's book to guess unknown words

  • guessing words is actually the emphasis of the instruction

  • to be continued...

Why is my child with dyslexia struggles to learn how to read and spell in a traditional way of teaching - whole language approach

  • Words become just things to children with dyslexia taught by the whole language approach and if they have not seen the words, they cannot read and spell the words, therefore they also cannot comprehend what they read. They cannot read!


Why can't my child learn to read and spell in a traditional way of teaching (whole language approach)?
