Phonics-based Reading vs. The Whole Language Approach - Educational Connections

That is a statement that just about every educator can agree upon. However, in terms of reading instruction, that’s about as far as the agreement goes. Over the past three decades a “reading war” has waged on in the field of education, leaving many parents confused as to what theory they should subscribe to for their child’s development. The two most popular terms tossed around in this reading war are phonics-based reading and the whole-language approach. But what do these terms mean and how does it translate to not only the early childhood but to the college classroom as well?

Phonics-based Reading In short,phonetic-based reading attempts to break written language down into small and simple components. Whole Language Approach In the simplest terms, the whole-language approach strives to teach children to read words as whole pieces of language. The two methods are apparently different, but what are the long-term effects of each approach? Children's books in languages spoken in Europe.

This post was actually inspired by a question posted on Elementary Librarian's FaceBook page, as well as several similar questions I've seen recently on LM_Net. Hang in there--it will get better! 1. Librarians wear many hats, but let's face it, when most people think of librarians, they think of book circulation first.
