Phonics Research

Over the past couple of years, I have posted several blog posts that discuss what the research says about using phonics, including what the research says about phonics for adolescents and adults, what the research says about phonics for English Language Learners (ELLs) and ESOL students, and what the research says about struggling ELL readers. I wanted to pass along an additional online resource I recently came across that addresses phonics research as it relates to the general population and its role and efficacy in teaching students how to read. I've included the link to this phonics research summary here. The text also includes several hyperlinks to additional sources, including a comprehensive phonics research bibliography at the end of the document, which I have found to be likewise helpful.


  1. Hello,

    I recently compiled a list of the best ESL blogs and I just wanted to let you know that you made the list! It is published online at http://www.onlinedegrees.org/top-25-esl-blogs-for-teachers-and-students/.

    Thanks for writing your great blog, and if you think your audience would like some of the other listed blogs feel free to share the list.

    Have a great day!
