The Power of a Rich Reading Classroom
Please order through Sage Publishing
The journey that children take as they travel towards becoming a competent and confident reader can be a long, winding and complex road.
This book helps teachers understand how to build a quality reading rich curriculum that supports the needs of all the children in their classroom.
Starting with a section on choosing texts, the book goes on to explore a variety of essential teaching approaches from a read aloud programme, to drama and storytelling, art and illustration.
A practical handbook, The Power of a Rich Reading Classroom provides teachers and schools ideas to support the embedding of text experience and deliver a reading rich curriculum that leads to higher student attainment and working at greater depth. It summarises years of classroom expertise and research from our Power of Reading, Power of Pictures and Reflecting Realities work.
"This is a book about creating an environment for reading in your classroom that supports children to become engaged and successful readers. Our hope is that it will help you to have a picture of the whole reading process and that you will have ideas about how to implement what you have learnt in your classroom." Louise Johns-Shepherd, Chief Executive.
