About the teaching program

 

The Sound Reading System is an exciting, common sense approach to the teaching of reading and spelling.  It is based on the spelling system of written English. The simple teaching methodology unlocks the complex English alphabet code in logical, incremental steps.  This is the code used to spell the spoken words of English. It is based on the work of Diane McGuinness, developed as a remedial program for native speakers of English by Fiona Nevola and adapted for EFL use by Rita Zeltsman-Kulick

Diane McGuinness is Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of South Florida. She is the author of over 100 research papers and several books including: Why Children Can’t Read, Penguin 1997, Growing a Reader from Birth, W.W. Norton, 2004, Early Reading Instruction, MIT Press, 2004 and Language Development and Learning to Read, MIT Press, 2005.

he price for the course includes a comprehensive teaching program with all materials, including the detailed step by step Teachers’ Handbook, a set of Worksheets, Word Cards supporting the 44 sounds, shipping costs (from England) .and certification.


Location –
the ESE center, 50 Bar Ilan St. Herzlia

WHAT IS THE SOUND READING SYSTEM?
What are the main features of the SRS teaching program?

The Sound Reading System is an advanced synthetic phonic program. SRS can also be described as a linguistic phonic program, which means that it teaches all the basic sound to spelling correspondences of English.

It is based on a sound understanding of the English alphabet code and focuses on teaching knowledge within a well designed teaching structure.

Every lesson is underpinned by the essential skills of segmenting, blending and sound manipulation/processing explicitly taught.

It is based on a simple to complex, incremental unfolding of code knowledge organized by sound.

It is easy to deliver because it is carefully and logically structured.

The sound- to- letter correspondences are always taught within the context of reading and spelling whole words.

No ‘whole word’ memorizing, no letter names but continual emphasis on the sound associated with the letter or letters making up the alphabet code.

SRS is a diagnostic teaching tool that provides focused and supportive error correction. It is flexible enough to adapt to the individual learner.

The specially designed worksheets and stories provide practice of both the skills and the knowledge to ensure learning and fluency.

SRS integrates handwriting at every step of the way and emphasizes the reversibility of the code for both reading and spelling.

SRS is simple, logical, multi-sensory and brain-friendly. It encourages understanding that leads to confidence and success!

Both the teacher and the learner understand exactly what they are doing!

Both the teacher and the learner expect to read real books as soon as possible!

SRS offers no unnecessary information, no illogical thinking, no rules or mnemonics and no guessing.
