Demystifying the how-to of teaching literacy

Drawing on Pat Hipwell's extensive experience as an independent literacy consultant, logonliteracy offers a range of guides and teaching resources that aim to improve students' reading, writing and literacy skills.

Because reading is such an essential life skill, it is very common for caregivers or parents to be concerned about their child's rate of progress. 

But whether or not you should actually be concerned depends on these key behaviours.

It is very common for people to say to me that their child reads but doesn't understand. This is not reading.

The teaching sequence that you'll find in How to write what you want to say... in the secondary years: Teacher's Guide is based on the teaching-learning cycle. There are four stages in teaching the skills needed to demonstrate writing for a purpose.
