It is a well known fact that pupils learning to read in English would benefit from the knowledge of phonics. This study investigated the attitude of teachers towards the use of Synthetic Phonics as a method for developing English literacy among Nigerian pupils. Five Hundred primary school teachers formed the sample for the study from Akwa Ibom, Rivers, and Oyo states of Nigeria. Data for the study were collected through post-teacher training questionnaire and Focus group discussions. Data collected were analysed and interpreted. The findings of the study show that teachers were positively disposed to the use of Synthetic Phonics as an intervention in developing English literacy among Nigerian Pupils.
