Product description

Product Description

This research seeks to be a map about the possibilities that surround learning to read … the sat nav tells you what to do and how to do it in order to progress from A to B.

By contrast this book is an exploratory map, a return to the rough ground and as such an opportunity to genuinely rethink learning to read

“School based pedagogy is not the only way.”
“It was as though a switch was thrown.”
“A huge mystery to me.”
“It is actually possible for teaching methods to
make it harder for a child to learn to read.”
Home educating families quoted in the book.

‘This meticulously researched book challenges assumptions about learning, schooling and educational research: suggesting that we need to rethink current pieties in all of these areas. Anyone with serious interest in what education is today should read it carefully.’

Dr Nick Peim, School of Education, University of Birmingham
