Having waited an age for the book to arrive, I spent much of my weekend reading The Secret of Literacy. As a keen follower of David Didau's blog, "The Learning Spy", much of the content – in the opening chapters at least- was familiar to me (like old friends as opposed to annoying in-laws). Reminding (rather than patronising) teachers about the inextricable nature of literacy and teaching, whilst offering practical strategies for improving literacy, this book is bursting with both style and substance. Didau's wit, honesty and distinctive style, have made this my favourite “teacher read” yet. Well worth the wait :-).
