Abstract

Claire McLachlan makes a case for a comprehensive approach to early-grade reading instruction that is based on research into how children acquire and improve reading skills and how children are motivated to use reading for pleasure, learning, and interaction within their culture and with the wider world culture. She also makes a case for adapting the practices developed in the cultures of OECD countries to the cultures in African countries to ensure the effectiveness of these imported teaching and learning programmes.
