   Course Summary
The scientific study of reading has taught us a good deal about how children learn to read. There is much though still to understand.
   Course Detail
We know relatively little about how children develop from novice to expert: how do children move from the laborious reading of individual words to the sense of effortlessness we, as skilled readers, experience as we read and understand text?  And why do some children find this so difficult? This talk will reflect on how language shapes the development of a child's reading system, with particular emphasis on what is clearly the ultimate goal of reading – to understand what it is that has been read. With this as a backdrop, we will consider how best to support reading comprehension in the classroom, drawing on recent research findings.
