A pun on ‘the way forwards’, I’ve started this blog to document my research and practice in to literacy and reading. I’m an English teacher based on the North West region of the UK, and in recent years I’ve specialised in teaching struggling readers along with dyslexic learners. I’m fascinated by the psychology and social aspect of reading, the way older learners with reading difficulties approach reading, and the way in which as adults we promote and assist in the development of reading as a skill.
Expect posts on my practice, things I’ve been reading or researching and my general thoughts on literacy and reading. I’d love to talk to other literacy enthusiasts so do get in touch!
