This comprehensive introduction to language, literacy and learning in the primary school explores the theoretical issues that underpin pedagogical practice in the primary English language classroom in a straightforward manner, enabling readers to understand the resulting practice and curriculum offerings in English primary schools today. The contributors explore new initiatives in primary language teaching, putting these into their theoretical context, and offer practical ideas, helping students to make the bridge from studying to be a teacher, through to the beginnings of their teaching career. Diversity and aspects of special educational needs are also considered in each section of the book. This book will be essential reading both for undergraduate students of education, as well as for PGCE students. Visit the UKLA's website : here

'In An Introduction to Primary English Teaching: Language, Literacy and Learning, Lecturers from the field of Initial Teacher Education have pooled their extensive practical and theoretical knowledge to provide a new ITE text book that is both comprehensive and accessible to trainee teachers. This book will make a useful contribution to reading lists for both Primary and Early Years students. The range of content is extensive and engaging, and will ensure that readers are equipped to develop their skills of reflection and analysis in relation to primary English, language and literacy issues, as well as to take on the practical challenges of literacy teaching and learning in educational settings' - Clare Dowdall, Professor at University of Plymouth
