What is Global Reading Approach?
• A global reading approach assumes that a
person learns to read best when reading
begins with natural and meaningful text.
• A global approach to reading is an approach
that begins by giving learners natural,
meaningful text to listen to, look at, and
memorize by sight.

phonemic awareness—the ability to
hear, identify, and manipulate phonemes—in order
to teach the correspondence between these sounds
and the spelling patterns (graphemes) that represent
Phonemes – sounds
Graphemes - letters
Phonics Method has proven to be useful in
teaching reading skills to students from
preschool through early elementary school or
as a practical way to introduce English to
