Primary tabs

This module discusses the different types of literacy. In unit 1 we look t the process of reading and writing. In Unit 2 there are four studies which demonstrate what young readers and writers do as they make sense of the process of reading and writing print. In Unit 3 we provide suggestions and ideas of ways in which a teacher can create a classroom environment which encourages her learners to use their print literacy for real purposes and in real contexts.
