School & College Programs

The Sound Way is an amazing online, direct instruction program that provides all students with a tangible understanding of the mechanics of the English language. In just 10 weeks you will we see as much as a six-year improvement in some student's reading, writing and spelling standards.

What will The Sound Way do for your school?

The Sound Way will lift and improve your students' (Grade 1 to Grade 12) Reading and Writing standards by an average of 2 to 3 school-years across the whole school in one term.

*Teachers will also observe and note a dramatic transformation in the standard of writing of their students by the end of the first week!

How does it do this?

Through a sequentially developed set of Direct Instruction video teaching lessons, the Sound Way program's video teacher explains and leads whole classes (small or large) through a step-by-step, face-to-face process to learn and master the essential phonetic skills along with the necessary rule knowledge that will allow them to successfully spell, write and read English.

The multi-sensory Sound Way programs begin by first teaching and programming the brain with the 45 sounds (phonemes) that comprise English words and the 75 ways there are of representing these sounds on paper (phonograms). The teaching, drilling and instilling of this esssential phonetic knowledge starts in the very first video-lesson and continues throughout the program. Integrated within this teaching is a thorough explanation and application of the rules of English spelling. This demystifies the reading and writing process and makes it truly understable to the students.

Sound Way provides schools with the wonderful opportunity to have two teachers operating within their classrooms at the same time. As the video-teacher systematically develops and presents the vital phonetic knowledge and understandings on the screen, the students are interactively working along with him recording their work in carefully prepared and provided workbooks; allowing the classroom teacher the freedom to move around the classroom and actively oversight and supervise their students as they work. The results teachers obtain through this cooperative approach to English literacy teaching can only be described as "stunningly amazing". What used to take years, can now be accomplished in a few short months!
