Executive Summary

Persistent and widespread concerns about the preparation of teachers to teach reading come from three sources: reviews and inquiries into the quality of initial teacher education; research surveys of preservice and graduate teacher knowledge about language and teaching, and their perceptions of their readiness to teach reading; and testimonies from preservice and graduate teachers.
This report adds to the evidence supporting the need for urgent and dramatic improvement in initial teacher education by looking at the extent to which literacy units in undergraduate initial teacher education courses provide evidence-based information on how children learn to read; and the most effective ways to teach them. It does this by examining the content of 116 literacy units in 66 degrees in 38 universities.
