'This very readable book is an extremely valuable addition to current literature on becoming a teacher of literacy. Classrooms are complex environments and learning from observation is a challenging process. This book supports such learning in a highly effective way. Powerful and realistic examples of classroom practice are accompanied by commentaries and questions which support the reader in looking critically and productively at learning and teaching.
This book provides a critical stand point for observing primary literacy...it demonstrates how aspects of literacy are connected and gives a toolkit for practitioners to use as a guide to this essential practice.
Essential reading for all early years students.
Essential reading for all primary teaching students.
This makes for essential reading for students. The chapters on teaching reading and writing are particularly valuable.
Very clear book, helping students identify good practice. This is extremely useful as PGCE programmes move towards extended school-based training.
Helps students when they are planning and writing up observations that concentrate on literacy
This is EXCELLENT! Beautifully written. A "must" on our PGCE programme and for teachers doing Masters work
We are recommending this book for pre course reading. It is highly readable but also thought provoking. It promotes open minded, critical thinking and it raises all the central issues within literacy learning.
