The text draws on the latest research in education, psychology, neurology, and sociology to illustrate how children's literacy development can be mapped against difficulties in other areas of their lives. This is a ground-breaking and accessible book for all trainee and existing primary teachers working with young children who are experiencing difficulty with reading, written, and spoken language.
This book is amazing!! It really capture the true essence of literacy following a child-led approach! I would like to thank the author for such great work!
A very useful title for the current times especially when we have such a diversity of children in schools in the UK>
This fascinating book explores a range of aspects of literacy across different areas of learning, exploring the building blocks of language, issues relating to emotional development and additional support needs, and also the importance of narrative for varied aspects of the curriculum. It is quite an eclectic collection of chapters. However, for any teacher interested in investigating how to increase the impact of their teaching using literacy strategies, it is invaluable. There are case studies to illustrate key points and activities to help readers contextualise what they are learning too.
