Phonemic awareness: a piece of the literacy puzzle
The research question addressed is, how can phonemic awareness strategies be effectively taught to primary students with disabilities? A review of research was conducted and several themes were found: lessons must be engaging, age-appropriate, and explicit for the students with whom they were designed. Ten tasks that make up phonemic awareness ability were identified and used to develop a curriculum that supports and monitors students' growth. An assessment was created, lesson plans compiled, and a list of resources made to support teachers teaching phonemic awareness skills.
