This practical and focused book draws on the author's own research project in order to identify good practice in promoting reading for enjoyment. Itpresents specific activities which teachers can use to develop their own whole school and classroom practice, enabling them to put the fun back into reading.
Each chapter features case-study material and provides examples of planning from schools that have successfully created thriving reading cultures through schemes such as reading assemblies, book clubs, library loyalty cards, school book evenings and quizzes. There is also an extensive, annotated list of print and internet-based resources. Topics covered include:
- Becoming a reading for pleasure school
- Promoting a love of reading in the early years
- Developing reading enjoyment in the later primary years
- Getting boys reading
Promoting Reading for Pleasure in the Primary School is written for all those involved in education who would like to see as many children as possible develop a love of reading. It will be particularly relevant for pre-service and in-service K-8 teachers, teaching assistants, advisers and consultants, and teacher educators and researchers.
