Product reviews for Reading for Pleasure

Teach Secondary Magazine, issue 6.2, 2017
-‹Research tells us that reading for pleasure can have more impact on a young person's educational outcome than even their family's relative wealth or social class; but in this age of screens and social media, how are teachers supposed to encourage it? In this brilliantly written guide, Kenny Pieper talks about his own experience of literature - how reading enabled him to become the first person in his family to go to university, and how he came to believe that fostering a love of books is his moral duty as an educator. He shares innovative and practical strategies to get young people talking and thinking about books, reading independently, developing their literacy skills and coming to think of reading as something to be shared and celebrated. His ideas don't demand unreasonable investment of your time and energy - but they could make a real difference.
