'In An Introduction to Primary English Teaching: Language, Literacy and Learning, Lecturers from the field of Initial Teacher Education have pooled their extensive practical and theoretical knowledge to provide a new ITE text book that is both comprehensive and accessible to trainee teachers. This book will make a useful contribution to reading lists for both Primary and Early Years students. The range of content is extensive and engaging, and will ensure that readers are equipped to develop their skills of reflection and analysis in relation to primary English, language and literacy issues, as well as to take on the practical challenges of literacy teaching and learning in educational settings' -
Clare Dowdall, Professor at University of Plymouth

'The editor and contributors in

the book have done an amazing job in communicating complex theories and

research findings in ways that can be easily taken up by practicing primary teachers.

There is also an important feature of the book that needs special mention. Throughout the book, readers may find various boxes that guide their reading. `Research Boxes' contain references to seminal studies and their major claims on selected topics. `Task Boxes' may be used by readers to reflect and clarify their understandings of the relevant issues. `Teaching Ideas Boxes' list useful `springboard' ideas that can be tried by readers in their pedagogical contexts'
