Reading | Teaching | Learning | Connecting

Nomanis, published twice a year, explores the ideas and evidence about effective instruction in reading and related skills, for teachers, parents, fellow professionals and policy makers. Our aim is to provide readable and engaging accounts of developments in the teaching of reading and writing, distilled from the sometimes rather esoteric, and certainly dry, research literature. Subscriptions are free, and we welcome contributions and correspondence.

Nomanis Notes

Nomanis Notes is a series of single page briefings on educational topics likely to be of interest to parents, teachers and other professionals, with particular reference to learning difficulties. Our aim is to succinctly summarise the state of knowledge on the topic, offer a considered opinion, and to provide starter references for those wishing to find out more.
