Who's it for?
  • Secondary teachers of any subject
  • FE and Functional Skills classroom tutors.
  • Upper primary teachers
  • Private tutorsĀ  and parents who have some experience with speech-to-print phonics and would like to learn more about teaching spelling with an approach based on those same linguistic phonics principles.
What's the format?

The 3rd edition of the book is now available from Amazon in your country.

How does this fit with the Post-16 Phonics toolkit?

On page 129 of the toolkit it says, 'For more guidance on linguistic phonic approaches to reading and spelling, upon which this toolkit is based, see That Reading Thing and That Spelling Thing.' Tricia Millar was one of the lead authors on the toolkit and TST provides a more structured approach to working with any words that come up in a post-16 classroom.

Does this work with That Reading Thing?

Yes - this makes a great add-on to TRT when you're ready to do more spelling and writing, usually after about Level 20.
