Literacy has become central to debates on policy and practice in education in the UK and other English-speaking countries. This book introduces teachers to current thought on the place of literacy in education, providing many different perspectives. It charts the latest ideas, and relates practical and policy concerns to an understanding of theoretical issues.
Concise and accessible, it connects with key aspects of the experience of professionals and students alike, and provides issues for group discussion or individual study, as well as suggestions for further reading.

About the Author:

Peter Hannon is currently Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield where he has directed research projects in parental involvement, family literacy and pre-school intervention. He teaches several Master' courses, including the University of Sheffield distance education MEd in Literacy and is also the author of Literacy, Home and School (Falmer 1995)

Review:

Particularly for practicing teachers who are also working on a Master's or other advanced degree in education, he explores such questions as what literacy is and why it is seen as so important, whether there is more than one kind, how to understand its development in individuals, how it should be taught, and how to research it in education.
–Reference & Research Book News

Hannon offers a concise, cogent, and valuable resource on literacy in education for all teachers of reading and graduate students in literacy-related programs...The text will prompt multiple conversations among readers with significant knowledge of the historical, sociological, philosophical, and political foundations of the governments, educational systems, and literacy concerns in the UK and the US.
–D.L. Norland, CHOICE, May 2001
