Topic People Description
From the emerging to the codified literacy Claudio Girelli
Learning to read and write is a significant moment in the growth of children. It begins in the kindergarten and is completed with a formalized teaching in the primary school. The ways in which the literacy process is carried out has a strong impact on both the scholastic and educational success of children. In this context, the research action is linked with the training of teachers involved in the research processes as experimentation of educational models. (Department research line: Teacher training).
