The Teacher's Tool Kit For Literacy

A Book Lover's Story

Episode Summary

Rebecca Bird from Pegi Williams Books joins literacy expert Sharon Callen to talk about engaging kids in Read Alouds, and creating meaning, motivation and skill in reading and writing.

Episode Notes

Most teachers know the importance of reading aloud but the research also backs this up.

Schools should encourage and support their teachers to read to their young students with greater frequency throughout primary school.

Reading aloud in the classroom and at home should be continued well past the period of acquiring independent reading skills and include a full range of text types.

To talk about this further, Sharon Callen is joined by consultant, former teacher and most importantly avid reader Rebecca Bird from Pegi Williams Books.

Rebecca shares her stories, learnings and insights about engaging children in reading, identifying the best books for Read Alouds, how teachers can set up their libraries and many other tools and techniques.
