Fifteen teachers and teacher educators worked together for a year to find out just what current theories about literacy development look like when they are put into practice. In this book we participate in their discussions about: How children learn to read and write What happens if they don't succeed What happens when the cultures of home and school differ How to provide equal learning opportunities for girls and boys What sort of talk takes place in classrooms How to assess literacy development How to teach second language learners How to involve parents. The Literacy Agenda actively engages the reader in discussion and debate. It provokes, encourages, and inspires teachers to "have a go" at confronting these issues in their own classrooms.
