Summary

For some decades there have been world-wide initiatives to improve literacy rates and standards. During the same period, concentrated research studies have been undertaken to find out how best to achieve desired improvements. Two main thrusts in teaching and learning how to read and write have emerged, often in controversy. One is generally known as the 'whole language' approach; the other concentrates more on theoretical assumptions underlying these two approaches to the teaching of literacy and the studies which have been undertaken in the international arena to find out how children progress, from their earliest educational years, in attaining both initial reading skills and lifelong literacy.
