David Wray David Wray taught in primary schools for 10 years and in four Universities in the UK. Before retirement he was Professor of Literacy Education at the University of Warwick. He has published over 50 books on aspects of literacy teaching and is best known for his work on developing teaching strategies to help pupils access the curriculum through literacy. This resulted in such innovations as the Extending Interactions with Texts (EXIT) model to guide the teaching of reading to learn, and writing frames to help with the writing of factual text types. His major publications include: Extending Literacy (Routledge); English 7-11 (Routledge); Literacy in the Secondary School (Fulton) and Teaching Literacy Effectively (Routledge Falmer). Recent research has explored the importance and teaching of handwriting, and the nature and use of readability.
