By David Rudd (ed)

Unlocking the Reader in Every Child

By Susan Elkin


ISBN: 978-1841679709


A combination of a basic guide to teaching reading and a toolkit of practical ideas. The approach to reading draws on established best practice and includes discussion of how to turn decoders into readers, helping strugglers and harnessing visual literacy. Alongside this are ideas for putting this into practice to encourage reading and build reading stamina.

Resources for Teaching English 14-16

By David A Hill
