Reading and home-education: a questionnaire study

Coventry University

University of Reading

Dr. Anna Cunningham, Dr. Julia Carroll, and Dr. Daisy Powell (University of Reading)

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.
