Reading Under Control Teaching Reading in the Primary School



Reading Under Control Teaching Reading in the Primary School by Judith Graham, Alison Kelly

Strongly rooted in classroom practice, the book provides comprehensive coverage of differing reading practices and resources. Key features include: * managing specialized reading difficulties, such as dyslexia * EAL and gender issues in reading * use of ICT within reading * a detailed inspection of the phonics debate. This book is essential reading for both trainee teachers and qualified teachers interested in continuing their professional development.
