Congratulations to our authors!
We are absolutely delighted to announce that our book – Guiding Readers: Layers of Meaning by Wayne Tennent, David Reedy, Angela Hobsbaum and Nikki Gamble – is the winner of the UKLA’s 2017 Academic Book Award!
‘The committee was impressed by the level of scholarship and the clarity of the summary of research evidence on reading comprehension. The chapter on text selection was seen as an important and distinctive element. We felt that the book redefined ‘guiding’ in the context of reading and reading comprehension, and that this was illustrated in a thorough and detailed manner. No doubt about it, this book is a prize-winner!’
We would like to thank the chair, Guy Merchant, and all the members of the panel for this wonderful appraisal and very much look forward to celebrating this prize-winning book at the UKLA International Conference, June 30th – July 2nd in Glasgow.
