This ebook, The Cognitive Psychology of Literacy Teaching:  Reading, Writing, Spelling, Dyslexia (& a bit more besides) has gathered the nuts, bolts and practical implications of the cognitive psychology of literacy into one comprehensive and empowering volume. It also provides a much more thorough, teacher-friendly but properly sceptical scrutiny of dyslexia than you will find elsewhere. The book also reviews some interesting and unusual new ideas which are about to become a lot more mainstream: For example the powerful effect of affect on learning and performance, the ubiquity and significance of learned helplessness to learning and literacy and the deeply important, but as yet unrecognised, enigma of consciousness in our teaching. There is a bibliography of all referenced texts, of course.
