This survey of local education authorities aimed to establish how widespread was the use of a literacy hour, and whether there were significant differences in approach between different models.
This report presents the results from the survey, which show that the use of a literacy hour is considerably more widespread than the National Literacy Project alone, and that not all literacy hours are the same. It gives a summary of the models of literacy hour revealed by the survey, compares and contrasts these, and relates each to the National Curriculum programmes of study.
