Tina Daniel

Dr Tina Daniel specialises in the teaching of early literacy. She has taught first and second language and literacy in a range of complex environments at primary, secondary and tertiary levels in rural and urban settings in the United States and Australia.

Recipient of a three-year Australian Research Council Scholarship, Dr Daniel’s doctoral research investigated teacher perspectives of their practice of early reading instruction and the social-discursive, material-economic, and socio-political factors that enable and constrain it. She has presented her work at conferences both in Australia and overseas and contributed to research for the trauma-informed teaching stream at Deakin University and La Trobe University’s Science of Language and Reading (SOLAR) Lab. She also curates the Facebook group, Reading Teachers Australia for over 9,300 teachers and principals.

Dr Daniel’s current research interests include the practice and pedagogy of early reading instruction; psychological, linguistic, and social correlates of literacy acquisition of young readers with and without learning difficulties; and environmental and systemic impacts on learning to read in different orthographies.
