International Literacy Centre



UCL Institute of Education, in association with Reading Recovery Europe, has published four books for classroom teachers for guided reading at Key Stages 1 and 2.

These provide classroom teachers and school librarians with a resource to 'band' guided reading books in appropriate levels for children of different abilities and ages. This can support assessment and tailoring instructions to the individual child.

For all of those interested or involved in the prevention of literacy failure, our fourth book published by UCL Institute of Education is on the history, policy and practice of Reading Recovery and the development of Every Child a Reader.

It presents the educational and economic arguments for early intervention, and the evidence for Reading Recovery's national and international success with young, socially disadvantaged and vulnerable learners.
