Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11

A Comprehensive Guide for Teachers and Student Teachers

Winner of the United Kingdom Literacy Association's Author Award 2011 for its contribution to extending children's literacy. Praise for the book: 'This book is about making readers. A compact summary of its contents would not do it justice. It is the accountof a life's work and it deserves thanks and readers. *****'. - Margaret Meek, Books for Keeps on-line, Number 185, November 2010. 'This book is a cornucopia of varied pleasures, offering something for all tastes, presented with an awareness of the complexities of the field and communicated with commitment, enthusiasm and deep knowledge'. - Eve Bearne, English 4-11, the primary school journal of The English Association, Number 42, Summer 2011. Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11 is a guide to the many kinds of text we want children to encounter, use and enjoy during their nursery and primary school years. So children’s non-fiction literature – including autobiography, biography, information and reference texts – is given equal status with fiction – nursery rhymes, picturebooks, novels, traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. The author addresses important issues and allows the voices of teachers, reviewers and children to be heard. The book supports teachers as they help children on their journey to becoming insightful and critical readers of non-fiction and sensitive and reflective readers of fiction. It also contains suggestions for practice which are in the spirit of the more flexible and creative approach to learning towards which primary schools are moving. It includes: help on using criteria to select quality texts of all kinds; annotated booklists for each kind of text for different age groups; suggestions for keeping a balance between print and screen-based texts; case studies showing teachers and children using texts in interesting and imaginative ways to support learning in English lessons and across the curriculum; advice on developing children’s visual and multimodal literacy; guidance on using the school library and embedding study skills in children’s wider purposes and learning; critiques of key theoretical perspectives and research projects. Although the main readership will be primary and student teachers, it is hoped that the book will be of interest and use to anyone concerned with the role of texts in children’s learning.

Teaching resources for ages 7-13

This indispensable resource, for teachers of pupils aged 7-13 years, consists of a series of graduated lesson plans aimed at improving children’s speaking and listening skills, their self-confidence and their motivation to learn, ultimately leading to better school performance. The scheme was developed and tested in schools during a four year period with over three thousand children and their teachers, and focuses on class and group activities that are enjoyable as well as instructive. All pupils are able to participate regardless of background, academic standing or facility in English, and the skills acquired are central to the National Curriculum for England and Wales Key Stages 2 and 3. Each lesson worksheet includes learning objectives, guidance on preparation and organisation, an activity guide, and follow-up suggestions, all presented in a clear and simple manner to lead the teacher step by step through the session. The materials are grouped into four levels of difficulty which combine to build a powerful range of abilities associated with persuasive and presentational speech, dialogue and debate, as well as developing the children’s command, use, and articulation of English. Each level consists of twelve starter lessons suitable for class-based group work, with sections preparing pupils for a variety of class competitions including public speaking, poetry reading and debating. The activities link naturally with other areas of the curriculum, and topics already being studied can easily be incorporated. In a parallel controlled research project highly significant gains in a nationally standardised test of non-verbal reasoning were made over a seven month period by children who followed the activities for one lesson a week compared to those who did not. These were well in excess of what would be expected for their increased age. Particularly high gains were made by children of lesser ability and those for whom English was an additional language. The improvements recorded were later confirmed by the schools’ own National Curriculum assessments of progress against targets, where on average the project children exceeded substantially the end of year forecasts made by their teachers.

Teaching Poetry in the Primary Classroom

When asked by the school inspector what he thought of poetry, an eleven year old replied that "it's all la-dida and daffodils, isn't it?" In his primary school the boy had come across very little poetry apart from nursery rhymes, snatches of rhyming verse and a few comic pieces and nonsense poems. Poetry to him was something arcane, not really related to his own life. He had studied no powerful, challenging, contemplative, arresting, quirky poems and had written very few poems himself. His teacher admitted that he was no English specialist, had received few ideas at college on the teaching of poetry and didn't really know where to start. As children progress through the primary school they need to be exposed to a rich diet of poetry and encouraged to read, perform and write it themselves. Providing a varied and stimulating environment is essential if is to flourish. In addition, children need specifi c guidance and ideas to start them off writing their own poems. This book, written by a former teacher and school inspector, and popular and widely published children's poet, offers an accessible, practical and structured programme for the teaching of this sometimes neglected aspect of the English curriculum.

Von Beethoven bis Obama – 100 Jungs, die die Welt verändert haben! Jungs brauchen Vorbilder – heute mehr denn je. In diesem aufwändig gestalteten Buch finden sie über 100 ganz persönliche Geschichten von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern, Umweltaktivisten, Fußballern, Politikern und Entdeckern – von großen und kleinen Helden aus der ganzen Welt und aus allen Epochen, die Grenzen überschritten haben und gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Sie alle hatten den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen und so ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls gibt es nun endlich auch eine inspirierende Geschichtensammlung für Jungs. Autor Ben Brooks erzählt von Persönlichkeiten, die Erstaunliches erreicht und die Welt auf ihre Art ein Stück besser gemacht haben – jenseits von stereotypen Männlichkeitsbildern und Rollenklischees. Denn: Man muss sich nicht mit großen Kämpfern identifizieren, die Drachen töten und Prinzessinnen retten, um zum Helden zu werden. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass man auch als Querdenker, als sensibler oder introvertierter Junge Außergewöhnliches zu leisten vermag. Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different ist ein unvergleichliches Buch, randvoll gepackt mit Abenteuern, spannenden Geschichten und mancher Überraschung. Am wichtigsten jedoch: es bestärkt kleine und große Jungs darin, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. "Dieses Buch kann Leben retten. Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern. Dieses Buch kann dazu beitragen eine neue Generation von Jungs hervorzubringen, die es wagen ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen." - Benjamin Zephaniah Mit spannenden Biografien von großen Persönlichkeiten, wie: Ai Weiwei, Barack Obama, Benjamin Zephaniah, Bill Gates, Christopher Paolini, Confucius, Daniel Radcliffe, Galileo Galilei, Hans Scholl, Harvey Milk, Jamie Oliver, Jesse Eisenberg, Jim Henson, John Green, John Lennon, Lionel Messi, Louis Armstrong, Louis Braille, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Nikola Tesla, Oscar Wilde, Patch Adams, Ralph Lauren, Roald Dahl, Salvador Dalí, Siddhartha Gautama, Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, Tank Man, Thomas Edison, Vincent van Gogh
