Retired teachers save the day on grammar: SMH


Teaching Kids to Read

'Teaching Kids to Read' is published this August

‘Grammar, which hasn’t been taught in most schools since the 1970s, will be a tough subject even for teachers when a new national curriculum reintroduces basic literacy skills next year,’ notes the Sydney Morning Herald‘s Mark McEvoy in a recent ‘Undercover’ column in the paper’s Spectrum section.

McEvoy observes that retired teachers are helping to fill the knowledge gap that exists in literacy teaching and acknowledges the forthcoming release of Fay Tran’s Teaching Kids to Read. Fay, a reading specialist of 25 years’ experience, recently retired for one of Victoria’s top private schools, Geelong Grammar School.

Teaching Kids to Read hits the warehouse of our distributor, The Scribo Group, this week, and will be in bookstores in early August.
