Reading All Types of Writing Summary


Reading All Types of Writing by Alison B. Littlefair

To meet the demands of the modern world, pupils need to read all types of writing with understanding. If the majority of pupils are to achieve this , they have to become aware of the different ways in which the genres of books they read across the curriculum are written. This book looks at new thinking of linguists and teachers about genre and register which can inform the teaching of reading. It aims to offer a practical way of understanding far more about language and the real possibility of using this knowledge in both primary and secondary school classrooms.
