The alphabetic principle and beyond: surveying the landscape

Author(s): Robyn Cox, Susan Feez, Lorraine Beveridge
The alphabetic principle and beyond… surveying the landscape The genesis of the idea for The alphabetic principle and beyond… can be found in the current prioritising of the alphabetic principle in the teaching of early reading and in discussions about how teachers might better understand varying perspectives in order to inform their practice. The editors committed to providing teachers with the latest research-based and evidence-based pedagogical practice while at the same time translating these big ideas.
