Literature and Literacy in Primary Education: UKLA Occasional paper

Occasional papers are prepared by groups of UKLA members, usually based on the work of UKLA Special Interest Groups, to offer up-to-date perspectives on contemporary issues. In this Occasional Paper, some key ideas relating to the importance of developing children’s love of literature are presented. Drawing from research and theoretical perspectives, the Paper outlines these issues and considers how practitioners can develop a love of literature in their literacy classrooms. For more information on UKLA Special Interest Groups see the SIG pages or contact us.
