Lighting the Literacy Fire (A4 paperback)

BySean David Burke

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Lighting the Literacy Fire is a creative manual for schools, teachers and parents who wish to bring literacy and language teaching to children in a joyful, meaningful and energetic way. It defines a path that is both more effective and more efficient than the largely fear-based methods currently in vogue, and more enjoyable too. The book provides not only materials, ideas and starting points for lessons, but also a comprehensive discussion of the precursor skills that underlie the learning of language, and also an examination of the organisational framework within which creative teaching can flourish. At the beginning of all meaningful teaching and learning is a relationship. When we are ready, willing and able to actually base our teaching on the relationships we develop with the children in our care, the result is creative, imaginative, satisfying, and effective teaching.
