Product Description

Hooked on Books

‘Hooked on Books’ is a primary teachers’ companion for those who care about building the right reading culture and community in their schools.  Not only does this book provide practical and ‘do-able’ strategies that can be instantly adopted, it also explains in detail a ‘Book Talk’ approach for the effective teaching of reading.

“Over the past two years, our school has fully embedded ‘Book Talk’ into daily practice from Reception to year 6. As a result, progress scores were in the top 11% for reading in 2016. Our work with Jane Considine has been fundamental in our school’s progress and our children’s outcomes, helping the school’s Ofsted rating go from Inadequate to GOOD in 3 years. Thank you!”  Mark Richards, Headteacher of St John’s C of E Primary School, Dorking.

This book introduces you to the ‘Reading Rainbow’ that is both systematic and transformative for teachers who want to teach reading in a productive and inspired way. An accessible read that leads teachers into the classroom making a difference where it matters to pupils. This work is evidence-informed and driven and shows teacher what can be achieved with clear structures, high expectations and has been tested out in hundreds of classrooms in the UK and has been shown to make a real difference.
