(2000) Literacy in the Secondary School London: David Fulton (an excellent text on literacy) but also include other theories and ideas such as Bloom’s taxonomy and the DOMs method. This is an accumulation of literacy strategies brought together as a guide for staff. Very handy for staff in any subject.
