The use of television in the development of literacy
This article considers the uses and benefits of schools television programmes aimed at developing literacy. It begins to examine the wider implications of the uses of film and television narrative on the teaching of reading. The research looks at the practice of two primary schools in west London in which a schools television programme formed a central part of the literacy teaching. It goes on to draw conclusions about the way in which such programmes can be used more effectively in the teaching of reading.
