요약
"Do we have a literacy crisis? Fierce debates in the media over how to teach children to read and write have reached new heights in recent years. The intensity of the debates is not surprising as literacy education matters to everyone, but there is collateral damage. Public confidence in literacy teachers has been undermined and many believe we have a literacy crisis in our schools. The Literacy Wars· is essential reading for everyone who cares about literacy education: parents, teachers, students, academics, politicians and policy makers. 'Ilana Snyder writes with customary clarity and verve, bringing much-needed insight to the field of literacy education.' Professor Richard Andrews, Institute of Education, University of London"--Provided by publisher.
