SA students making big gains in literacy after ‘getting back to the basics’

South Australian students are making big gains in literacy after the state decided to get “back to the basics,” according to The Daily Telegraph’s Clare Armstrong.

The Advertiser is reporting a switch to phonics-based learning has also seen year three students experience dramatic improvements in their NAPLAN results.

“It’s also finally a shift away from just learning for the NAPLAN, basically dedicating that whole period of school and the lead up to just getting the test right,” Ms Armstrong said.

“If you actually teach reading and phonetics in a structured, simple way, the flow on effect will be there in the result of the NAPALN because that’s exactly what it’s designed to test.”
