The Reading Reform Foundation (UK)

Postby Anne Glennie » Sun May 24, 2015 12:40 pm

The Reading Reform Foundation (RRF) is an organisation dedicated to campaigning for better teaching of reading in the English language. Their website has something to offer everyone who is interested in the teaching of reading.
As well as containing resources, assessments and newsletters, the real attraction of this site is the active forum. Based in the UK but with international appeal, you can find discussions, information and research on all aspects of reading and interact with experts in the field.

Just to say that a 'new look' RRF website has been under construction and therefore the message forum has not been active in the way it has been historically.

Thankfully, the forum has now been updated, re=installed and is ready-to-go. Thank you for everyone's patience.

There still remains some teething problems with the archived RRF newsletters but when these become available again, they include an important record of developments in England from eclectic reading instruction methods (the 'searchlights' multi-cueing reading strategies of the National Literacy Strategy) to the mandated 'systematic synthetic phonics teaching principles' which do not include multi-cueing for guessing the words and which are now embedded in the 2014 national curriculum for English. The journey in England is indeed an interesting and important one both politically and educationally - and a journey that should be of interest in other parts of the world.
