Abstract

Responding to the urgent call to address the need for appropriate preparation of professional teachers of reading, this preliminary investigation examined the phonological awareness knowledge of Bachelor of Primary Education and Master of Speech Pathology students in their first semester of study before and after their regular course work. This report outlines the results of the study and proposes ways of utilising this information to enhance tertiary teaching practices, with the ultimate aim of raising student performance in the area of phonological awareness.
