The chapter draws upon a range of research undertaken in schools, classrooms, homes and communities which has contributed to a growing understanding and awareness of the factors which influence pupils’ development as readers. Key topics covered include gender differences in reading attainment and reading preferences, the growth and impact of ICT on reading for pleasure and as a mode of reading, and the ways in which culture, ethnicity and language influence pupils as readers.
