NEPS - A Balanced Approach to Literacy Development in the Early Years

Course description

The National Educational Psychological Service is committed to promoting best practice in the teaching of literacy skills. As part of the National Literacy Strategy, NEPS have developed a new on-line resource for use by teachers in Irish primary schools.

The Balanced Approach to Literacy Development in the Early Years draws on international research, evidence based practice and samples of that practice in Irish primary schools to give a coherent and comprehensive guide to teachers.

This is a resource that can be used by class teachers working with children from Junior Infants to First Class. It may also be helpful to schools who have identified the need to improve reading standards as part of the school-self-evaluation process.   Some schools may also like to use the resource to support the work of a professional learning community focusing on literacy.

The Balanced Approach uses the analogy of the Literacy Tree and all the elements of literacy  teaching and learning are incorporated  into this  accessible new framework.
