Introduction to the 'Big Six' of Reading

. . . the six evidence-based skills and strategies all readers need


Learning to read and read well is the most important educational outcome. Decades of research highlights the importance of reading success in the early years and research identifies six crucial elements for developing reading proficiency in the early years.

Mastery in applying these six elements individually as well as the ability to integrate them together is critical.

This 60 minute webinar will provide an overview of the origin and components within 'The Big Six':

  • Oral language
  • Phonological awareness
  • Phonics
  • Vocabulary

Participants will explore each element in isolation and the way these elements must be carefully combined to skilfully execute the skills and strategies required to speak and read effectively.
