The Whole Language vs. Phonics Debate

What is Right-Brain Learning?
Most people have a dominant hand, a dominant foot and a dominant eye. And so it goes for the brain, and for most of us, the left hemisphere is dominant.
Shouldn't I teach the alphabet first?
Babies can learn to read whole words without knowing the letters of the alphabet. However, children need to learn phonics in order to progress to phonetic reading (sounding out words). Some people think that children shouldn't learn to read whole words. We believe that it is beneficial to learn to read as young as possible, and that so long as children learn phonics before they start school, they will be fluent readers.

What if my baby doesn't enjoy reading?
Step back, and look at what you're doing. The cardinal rule of teaching babies reading - or anything else, for that matter - is to make it fun.
Isn’t Learning to Read Supposed to be Difficult?
Reading depends on the brain's ability to connect and integrate various sources of information - specifically, visual with auditory, linguistic and conceptual areas. This integration depends on the maturation of each of the individual regions, their association areas, and the speed with which these regions can be connected and integrated.
