Jordan Brown: Writing for Boys

Jordan Brown: Writing for Boys | Answers | Scoop.it

Good suggestions...
"If a boy is told that reading a graphic novel isn't real reading--if reading is seen as work or punishment--who's going to start to think of something as enjoyment. If boys don't develop a love of reading, they're not going to get to any of those other books that people want them to read."

Meet The 16-Year-Old Book Reviewer

Robby Auld came onto my radar when he reviewed my book for The Nervous Breakdown, writing one of the most thoughtful assessments of my memoir to date. I couldn't help wanting to know more about the kid who cracked the literary scene.

This is a must read.....Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions | Answers | Scoop.it

Michael Rosen gives wise commentary on some of the issues raised at this conference.
"... if you connect a reading for enjoyment programme across a whole school, connecting it to sheer volume of reading AND to rewards and awards decided by the authority of the school - no matter how kind or well-meaning - then the emphasis in the children's minds will not be on the two key aspects of reading that, I would say, would impact on writing: a) personal unravelling of meaning through silent reading b) open-ended, unrewarded, ungraded talk."
