How does explicit phonics teaching make a difference? Presentation at the ALL Yorkshire Winter Series

Presentation by Rachel Hawkes at the third session of the Association for Language Learning (ALL) Yorkshire Winter Series, at King Edward VII School, Sheffield on Thursday 23 January 2020.

The MFL Pedagogy Review recommendations include (amongst others) principles for teaching phonics, vocabulary, grammar and their combination in meaningful practice. In this workshop Rachel focussed on research-informed practice for explicitly teaching, consolidating and applying the sound-writing relationship in secondary language learning. The session included (freely available) resources for teaching phonics in French, German and Spanish.
