New book: Working with Emergent Language

Richard Chinn and Danny Norrington-Davies, both Teaching Associates in the School of Education, Communication & Society, give advice to modern language teachers on how to develop their classroom skills for working with unplanned language that arises in a language lesson.

In their book, they raise awareness of emergent language and highlight its importance in learning a new language. They give more details and examples in the video on the right.

New book: Dyslexia, A History

The history of dyslexia has been documented for the first time in a new book co-authored by Dr Philip Kirby, lecturer in Social Justice at the School of Education, Communication & Society, and Prof Maggie Snowling, Emeritus Professor in Psychology at the University of Oxford.

Catch up on the book launch panel discussion in the video on the right. They were in discussion with King's alumna Onyinye Udokporo, who has recently published her book 'Dyslexia & Me' on her lived experience of dyslexia as a black woman, and Darren Clark, CEO of the charity Succeed With Dyslexia.
