The In Teachers' Hands project investigated the link between children's growth in English literacy in the early years of schooling and their teachers' classroom teaching practices. The website presents a copy of the report along with video clips of effective early years literacy teaching. The teachers in these clips demonstrate and discuss 33 teaching practices identified through a comprehensive review of research literature. These teaching practices are grouped into six dimensions in the Classroom Literacy Observation Schedule (CLOS) that we created for this project.
