Achieving Literacy: Longitudinal Studies of Adolescents Learning to Read.
Meek, Margaret; And Others
The eight chapters in this book relate the experiences and reflections of six researchers/teachers who set out to teach five students who had failed to acquire a useful degree of literacy. The book also provides a great deal of information about many of the central topics of teaching literacy: children's motivation, the influence of social and cultural background on learning, and different methods of teaching reading. These topics are integrated into the detailed case studies the book describes. (HOD)
