Support your child's literacy journey
By Kevin Wheldall, Nicola Bell
Over the past 20 years, reading scientists have made significant progress in understanding how children learn to read and the best way to teach these basic skills. However, many of these advancements in understanding are yet to be translated into classrooms and education systems through policy and effective teaching practice.
This book, edited by Emeritus Professor Kevin Wheldall AM and Dr Nicola Bell, draws together contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field, and outlines how recent research findings could be applied practically through teaching in the classroom.
MultiLit is dedicated to improving the literacy skills of all students. To do so, we have developed books and resources that are easy to use for parents, caregivers and teachers to support any child’s literacy development journey.
Our programs are grounded in scientific evidence-based best practice. The research team that makes this possible is continually broadening their knowledge and has done so for over 25 years. Our research team, led by Emeritus Professor Kevin Wheldall AM, provides crucial insights to help us create and curate our high-quality literacy resources.
MultiLit (Making Up Lost Time in Literacy) Pty Ltd was spun out of Macquarie University in 2006 and is a leading provider of effective literacy instruction in Australasia.
All our resources take an explicit, systematic approach to teaching reading.
