Learning How to Read

During the primary years, young students learn to read. “Reading is the process of constructing meaning from a written text. Effective early reading instruction enables all children to become fluent readers who comprehend what they are reading, can apply and communicate their knowledge and skills in new contexts, and have a strong motivation to read.” (Early Reading Strategy: The Report of Expert Panel on Early Reading in Ontario, 2003).
