Traditionally, language activities books have been focused mainly on the reductionist processing or analytical base. This is to say that, in general they have been concerned more with the analysis of parts of language, such as words, letter and sound relationships, grammar, spelling and sentence work. In addition, the majority of these books, particularly in the primary area, have dealt with one level of comprehension. A modern understanding of the interactive processes involved in successful listening, speaking, reading and writing directs the focus towards a constructive approach to literacy teaching that is more closely related to how memory stores and processes information, New Wave Literacy follows this direction.
