This book discusses the implications arising from the authors' research into what constitutes an effective teacher of literacy. They have been able to identify what effective teachers know, understand and do which enable them to put effective teaching of literacy into practice in the primary phase. By identifying the strategies used by these teachers, the authors show how these can be applied by other primary teachers to improve their teaching of literacy.
