Wars and Waste

Our first session at ResearchED English and MFL, Oxford was called Wars and Waste to highlight two key ideas:

1 The lack of agreement and open conflict regarding the best ways to teach reading;

2 The immense waste this has created in time, money, and quality of life.

The session is divided into three sections:

1 The extent of illiteracy;

2 The reasons for this;

3 The two main approaches to teaching reading, and why one is demonstrably superior to the other.
