Power of Pictures Project Research Jan 2017
Teachers taking part in the Power of Pictures project, run and devised by CLPE, have reported that the use of drawing and picture books in the classroom has led to improvements in children’s reading and writing. Crucially, this improvement has been particularly significant in EAL children and boys who are reluctant writers. Through the use of drawing to slow down the writing process and allow time for discussion, children are given the time to both generate imaginative ideas and to develop the vocabulary to express them.
The key findings provide fascinating and impactful insights that all those working with children should read and consider. Download the documents on the left for the full report and key findings.
