Reading Recovery – the way forward. An exchange on Guardian Education. – John Bald/language and literacy

The Echo Chamber

Writing in Guardian Education, Pat Stone confused me with another John who had been involved in writing phonic materials. The exchange led to this clarification of my view on reading recovery, which I’ve criticised in the past for weaknesses in research and method, chiefly for the absence of a clear basis in phonics. The outcome has been to identify a strength in RR that has become much clearer since Kandel’s  book, but also to strengthen the case for a revision of its teaching techniques.
