The THRASS Institute Phonics Instruction Courses
THRASS is an explicit phonographic approach to teaching reading and spelling skills to learners of any age. It is dependent on the competence, commitment and understanding of the teacher using the pedagogy, and because of its specific learning technique should not be combined with other more widely used and out-dated, letter-to-sound programs. The THRASS methodology has been designed to provide teachers with a multisensory, phonographic methodology, to deliver positive learning outcomes in the literacy skills that are critical for mastering the other cornerstones of basic education.
THRASS is designed to build both content, and pedagogical knowledge. THRASS is the only comprehensive phonetics teaching process designed specifically as a teacher training program for the teaching of speaking, reading and writing skills in English, as a first or other language.
