Chapter 11 investigates the complex and multiple relationships between reading aloud and education in three ways, first looking at oral reading as a tool to teach early reading to children and adults, as further reading development and to teach additional or foreign languages, as well as to teach a wider range of subjects as a classroom and learning tool. This chapter then asks how adults were or are taught to read aloud, exploring examples from drama, elocution, choirs and religious training, before ending with a brief analysis of the educational implications of the Reading Aloud in Britain study itself, asking ‘what, if anything, does all this mean for education?’
