The aim of this book is to provide practical, research-based ideas that will help teachers strengthen their students' reading and writing performance. Each chapter provides practical ideas and resources designed for primary educators. This book approaches reading and writing programmes as if looking through two camera lenses. The first is a wide-angle view looking at the big picture, including effective schools research and the critical components of a complete, comprehensive reading and writing program. The second lens is a zoom lens focusing in on specific ideas, tips, lists and suggestions for strengthening students' reading and writing performance.
