There are plenty of blog posts out there on Delta. There’s advice on studying for the Module 1 exam, the (excellent) Delta Conversations series on Sandy Millin’s blog, and you can even find people who’ve posted their entire Module 2 LSAs online (not recommended!). In this post, I’m going to share my Module 3 bibliography.
What was your specialism?
My specialism was young learners aged eight to twelve.
What grade did you get?
Good question! I got a Merit for Module 3.
There are some books on this list that are extremely useful for any YL teacher to read- even if you’re not doing the Delta. I’ve put them in bold.
