Learners' Views of Literacy

Learners' Views of Literacy (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Understanding pupils' perspectives on their learning has been shown to be of significant help in planning and implementing an effective literacy teaching programme. This book offers a new viewpoint of reflective curriculum design, in contrast to current 'top-down' models characterized by dictates and requirements placed on teachers from above. Instead, the learner is placed at the centre of teaching as the text explores much-needed evidence about the views of learners themselves. Topics covered include: learners' perspectives of reading, writing and literacy teaching; learners' perspectives on literacy teaching; an exploration of the viewpoints of the learners; and advice on how to develop a learner-centred approach to literacy teaching.
