The Teaching of Reading : The Development of Literacy in the Early Years of School Paperback / softback
by Jeni Riley
Paperback / softback
`The aim of this book is admirable. Despite the preponderance of texts on the development and teaching of literacy, a book which is driven by psychological theory but succeeds in combining this theory with suggestions for classroom practice is long awaitedâ€² - Child Language Teaching and TherapyThe Teaching of Reading combines theoretical and practical aspects of literacy, and is intended to be informative and practical in its classroom application.
The author shows that informed practice can only develop from a genuine understanding of the literacy process, and the book charts the way in which the young child progresses from the first glimmerings of the purpose and recognition of print, through to a state of fully developed fluent reading.
