Both socially and educationally, reading is a core and transferable skill across the curriculum, as well as a domain-specific activity in the first language curriculum.  In our lives beyond formal education, reading helps us to understand ourselves and our world: as William Nicholson famously said, ‘We read to know we are not alone’.  In this module you will address the learning and teaching of reading, with a particular emphasis on reading comprehension and the strategies needed to be a successful reader.  You will also have space for reading children’s literature from picture books for pre-readers through to teen fiction and crossover fiction.
