Our Areas of Research and Our Publications
TACK has researched and published a series of texts to teach reading skills in Arabic. These vibrant books offer plenty of opportunities for building oral and written language as the children learn to read. Click here
We have developed a method of assessing reading progress that enables teachers to match books to the level of each individual child and fine-tune reading instruction to make sure that progress is consistent and sustained.
Learning to Write
Learning letter-sound relationships is a particular challenge in Arabic as each letter of the alphabet has a different grapheme when at the beginning, the middle or the end of a word.
TACK has developed innovative approaches to learning how to recognise Arabic letters drawing on research on how children learn to discriminate letter shapes.
Phonics is an important element in the teaching of reading in all alphabetic languages. Learning the relationships between the letters we see and the speech sounds we hear is particularly important in the early stages of learning. This learning is much more effective if it is systematic.
TACK is researching how this can be applied to Arabic and taught systematically and thoroughly.
Oral Language
Oral language is the foundation of reading and writing skills, even when the spoken form differs from the written form.
TACK seeks to create authentic and dialogic environments for language learning. Extra- curricular themed days make language learning fun and exciting.
