Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions | Informed Teacher Librarianship | 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."
