The SLA has just published Creating Readers: A Reflective Guide for School Librarians and Teachers by renowned reading expert Prue Goodwin. The book aims to help librarians and teachers:
• consider the process of becoming a reader
• revisit aspects of literacy teaching
• challenge and question assumptions about teaching reading
• initiate discussion amongst colleagues.
The book has a direct relevance to all staff working in primary schools but is also invaluable to any working in a secondary school who are involved in work with transition or are struggling to help pupils gain the skills they need to access the secondary curriculum and become readers. It will give all staff an understanding of the processes involved in becoming a reader and give confidence to library staff to enable them to become more involved in literacy initiatives.
This valuable new work is available to order direct from the SLA.
