This is for No. 1 of the series: Learning and Teaching Reading
Edited by Rhona Stainthorp & Peter Tomlinson
This first monograph issue provides understanding on how reading develops, what may be the causes of reading difficulties and how empirical evidence can develop rational teaching approaches. It provides accessible accounts of complex theories that point the way to how pedagogic methods might enable children to acquire the skills necessary to become literate. By considering these published papers, professionals can make more informed judgements about what they need to teach. They will also begin to make sense of the problems they are confronted with when children present with major literacy difficulties.
