Phonological awareness operates at increasingly fine-grained levels as illustrated in this table.

 

LEVEL

 

EXAMPLES

 

        

 

        

 

word

 

bed

 

black

 

napkin

 

syllable

 

bed

 

black

 

nap-kin

 

onset-rime

 

b-ed

 

bl-ack

 

n-ap k-in

 

phonemes

 

/b/-/e/-/d/

 

/b/-/l/-/a/-/ck/

 

/n/-/a/-/p/-/k/-/i/-/n/

 

Because learners often have a partial awareness - not an “all or nothing” understanding - you will need to investigate learners’ awareness at each level through careful assessment.

To refresh your understanding, read the sections on phonological awareness on pages 18-22 in Starting Points: Supporting the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy.
