Ep. 147: Hot Topic Series: What is Speech to Print?
In this episode, we’ll discuss an approach to teaching foundational skills known as speech to print. The speech to print approach consists of 4 concepts with consistent logic:
- Letters spell sounds (alphabetic principle)
- Sounds can be represented by one or more letters
- Sounds can be spelled different ways
- Spellings can be pronounced in different ways
What is the difference between speech to print and a traditional print to speech approach? What does the speech to print approach look like in practice? What does the research say about this approach?
