Literacy experts Sharon and Phil Callen are joined by Rebecca Bird to talk about the best books for teachers to engage high school readers.
Many teachers are looking for more ways to engage secondary students and young adults in their reading. And a lot of that comes down to choosing the right books and texts.
But how can teachers find 'just right' texts for students?
How do we find a place for these texts when there is so much required content?
How do we create more space for independent reading?
Sharon and Phil Callen are again joined by Rebecca Bird from Pegi Williams Bookshop to discuss these questions and more.
