Dianne Murphy

Murphy’s law corrected

I would like to apologise to Dianne Murphy in jumping the gun by suggesting that her approach to the teaching of reading was Whole Language.
Dianne has written a comment on the tail of the posting to say that the approach is “definitely not ‘Whole Language’ and nor is it ‘drill and practise’ in the sense of mindless repetition”.
Guess what I’m having for Sunday lunch? Another slice of that humble pie, please!
