Project Objectives

The aim of this project is to find out more about home-educators’ motivations and approaches to the teaching of reading. In September 2015, we launched an online survey for parents who are currently home-educating a child/re between the ages of 3 and 10. Parents are asked about their philosophy on how reading should be taught, how they currently teach it, and the reading experiences of their child/ren to date. We plan to invite a sub-set of respondents to take part in a more in-depth investigation of this topic in the future.  

The questionnaire can be found here.
