The teaching of reading is crucial to the future success of Scottish pupils and I welcome the publication of further advice and support for teachers involved in teaching such skills, Raymond Robertson, minister for education at the Scottish Office said today.

The minister was commenting on an Interchange report 'Methods of Teaching Reading: Key Issues in Research and Implications for Practice', published today by the Scottish Office education and industry department.

The report provides a summary of a recent review into methods of teaching reading at the initial stages of primary education and provides teachers, parents and teacher educators with practical advice on how best to support young pupils experiencing difficulty in learning to read.

'The teaching of reading is crucial to the future success of Scottish pupils and indeed the future of Scottish education as a whole and I am pleased to be able to announce further advice and support for teachers, parents and teacher educators involved in teaching such skills,' Mr Robertson said.
