  • READING FOR LIFE
    READING FOR LIFE
    Why is it that more people can't read and write? Why are there still so many vastly different methods of teaching literacy? Why do people still argue about it?

    Reading for Life examines these three questions, addressing the less evidence supported ideas about teaching reading and writing which are still alive and well in schools all over the world. This accessible guide bridges the gap between research and practice, translating academic findings into practical suggestions and ready-to-use techniques.

    Written in an approachable style and with informative graphics, vignettes and interviews woven throughout, this book covers:

    - the components of literacy, including phonics, vocabulary and fluency
    - the history of approaches to literacy teaching and an overview of the key figures
    - government-level inquiries into the provision of reading and writing teaching
    - the mindset which leads to acceptance of poor practice
    - the essential components of an effective literacy program with practical advice on selecting resources to get the job done well

    Reading for Life helps educational practitioners make informed decisions about which teaching methods to reject and select, and empowers parents to ask the right questions of professionals and policy makers. This book is a timely exploration of poor teaching methods and is an innovative, fresh assessment of how high quality literacy teaching can be provided for all.

  • READING IN THE BRAIN - The new Science of how we read
    READING IN THE BRAIN - The new Science of how we read
    The act of reading is so easily taken for granted that we forget what an astounding feat it is. How can a few black marks on white paper evoke an entire universe of meanings? It's even more amazing when we consider that we read using a primate brain that evolved to serve an entirely different purpose. In this riveting investigation, Stanislas Dehaene explores every aspect of this human invention, from its origins to its neural underpinnings. A world authority on the subject, Dehaene reveal the hidden logic of spelling, describes pioneering research on how we process languages, and takes us into a new appreciation of the brain and its wondrous capacity to adapt.

    Dehaene will be a key note speaker at the 2019 Language, Literacy and Learning Conference being held at Perth Convention Centre.
