Encouraging Book Talk in the School Library

Course Level 1: Introductory

Estimated Study Time: 4-6 hours

As adults we sometimes struggle to justify our feelings about particular books, but children are quite clear about what they like and don’t like. It is possible to get children to discuss why they liked or did not like particular books and to encourage them to think more deeply about the books they’ve read.

This course offers ideas and activities to engage pupils in discussing books. It is aimed at librarians, teaching assistants and other adults working with pupils in school libraries.
