Designed to help teachers support students as they learn to read, this text covers the concept of literacy, literature-centred approaches to teaching, vocabulary and word-identification development, constructivist teaching methods, and holistic assessment approaches. The book aims to develop a school/classroom literacy programme with teaching and learning strategies that lead to a productive learning partnership between student and teacher. It emphasizes the importance of helping students to become independent readers and writers, presenting many literature-based strategies for helping children to develop literacy and exploring the connections between reading, writing and thinking which are inherent in these strategies.
