The chapter opens with a comprehensive definition of phonemic awareness and distinguishes it from related terms including phonological awareness and phonics. It then presents a thorough review of correlational and experimental studies that report strong relationships between phonemic awareness and learning to read, highlighting instructional approaches that have proven successful. A review of the National Reading Panel's meta-analysis of phonemic awareness studies is also presented.
