Specific Pedagogical Practice for the teaching of literacy.

THRASS is a phonetics teaching-tool that has made a paradigm shift in the teaching of phonetics. It has a phonographic, multisensory focus, complemented by an analogous learning model that makes reading and spelling acquisition much simpler, faster and more sustainable than conventional ‘phonic’ approaches. As a classroom strategy THRASS is fun, systematic, explicit and linguistically correct.

Teach the building blocks of reading and spelling.

THRASS is an acronym for Teaching Handwriting, Reading And Spelling Skills. It is a system for teaching learners of any age about the building blocks of reading and spelling, that is, the 44 phonemes (speech sounds) of spoken English and the graphemes (spelling choices) of written English. THRASS has a unique methodology known as the THRASS Specific Pedagogical Practice (TSPP).
