 About the Book 

Teaching children to develop as language users is one of the most important tasks of the primary teacher, since it is through the use of language skills that children gain access to and communicate thoughts and ideas across the curriculum. HereMoreTeaching children to develop as language users is one of the most important tasks of the primary teacher, since it is through the use of language skills that children gain access to and communicate thoughts and ideas across the curriculum. Here students in initial teacher training are encouraged to consider the nature of the knowledge they will require if they are to provide informed and useful support to children. Starting from the level of texts for a range of purposes, the author goes on to explore how a clearer understanding of syntax, vocabulary and phonics can enrich reading and writing.The first edition was adjudged by the Teacher Training Agency to meet the subject knowledge requirements and is included in their catalogue of materials so approved. The second edition has been expanded to include self-assessment activities to enable readers to audit their knowledge against these requirements. It also reflects fully the changes in the primary English National Curriculum 2000.
