Overview

The Reading for Real Handbook provides a readable and authoritative account of current theories which underpin reading and the teaching of reading, and offers practical guidance on how to implement these theories.

This new edition has been completely revised to take account of the developments in reading research, and changes in classroom practicalities which have come about as a result of the National Literacy Strategy. The book will help teachers to understand the principles behind the literacy strategy, and how they can make coherent links between the strategy, the learning theories which underpin it, and a continued emphasis on using excellent books across the curriculum. It is essential reading for all teachers in the early and primary years.
