This book provides a guide for classroom teachers to support literacy teaching. The authors suggest that in order for teachers to be successful at teaching pupils complex reading skills, they need to have an understanding of how these skills are built.

They address text selection, the idea that what we choose to read matters as much as how we read it; close reading, defining it and providing a set of tools that can help teachers close read with rigor and insight; the importance of non-fiction; and on ensuring pupils read a lot in a variety of ways — silently, aloud, and being read to.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
