The views expressed in this podcast series are those of presenters and guests and are not necessarily endorsed by the University of Melbourne.

In this episode of Talking Teaching Kerry Elliott talks to David Hornsby about the contentious issue of how we teach reading to young students. Why can’t we agree on the fundamentals and insist on comprehensive English language training for teachers? Listen to David Hornsby's common sense approach.

David Hornsby has a fifty year background as an educator. He has been a teacher, and a university lecturer at La Trobe, RMIT and University of Melbourne. He is one of our most popular presenters to our University of Melbourne’s Network of Schools (UMNOS)
