Children's literature - video presentation

Develop literary consciousness in students
"Children's literature - Dr Alyson Simpson (University of Sydney) - To develop literary consciousness as well as good spelling, fluency and comprehension, Simpson believes that strategies like modelled, shared and silent reading allow time to for students to engage with books for pleasure as well as learning. She sees that teaching reading is important through all grades and that, to achieve all literacy goals, teachers need to actively lead children to read a wide range of texts and respond in different ways.
