Over the past 20 years, reading scientists have made significant progress in understanding how children learn to read and the best way to teach these basic skills. However, many of these advancements in understanding are yet to be translated into classrooms and education systems through policy and effective teaching practice.
This book, edited by the MultiLit Research Unit’s Emeritus Professor Kevin Wheldall AM and Dr Nicola Bell, draws together contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field, and outlines how recent research findings could be applied practically through teaching in the classroom.
