A series of new reports highlight the importance of children’s motivation and self-confidence when it comes to the development of literacy. Language Curriculum Research Reports
Key findings include:
* A culture of reading
and writing in print and digital formats from a young age is important
in developing positive attitudes to literacy;
language for pragmatic and practical reasons – to communicate with other
children, with adults, and to interact with print and digital texts;
*Teachers and early childhood practitioners need to balance enabling and directing in their work with children;
*Reading comprehension is a technical skill that needs to be explicitly taught and supported by oral language work
