The science of language and reading is for everyone Structured, explicit language and reading instruction across primary and secondary grades
Professor Pamela Snow
Professor of Cognitive Psychology in the School of Education, La Trobe University
This presentation will cover the key elements of spoken and written language that teachers need to
understand in order to provide structured and explicit instruction and support across primary and
secondary grades. The relationship between spoken and written language will be described, drawing
on findings from developmental psychology that oral language is biologically primary while reading, writing
and spelling are biologically secondary. The implications of this distinction will be emphasised and important
historical influences on the English writing system will be outlined. Key components of language will be discussed with reference to their importance for supporting primary and secondary students with language and literacy difficulties.
