Description Children deserve the very best literature we can provide – material which will arouse their interest in and develop a move of books and reading. This session will suggest a range of exciting, challenging and appropriate texts for use in the classroom to encourage young readers and act as models for their own writing. This will be a practical session with ideas and strategies for teachers to use in school. This course will offer teachers a wide range of ideas and strategies for storytelling and for story writing. Areas for consideration will include choice of theme, story performance, development of story structure, creation of character and use of language. Teachers will have the opportunity to examine and assess a variety of appropriate texts and resources used to promote storytelling and will return to school with plenty of practical ideas to use in the classroom.
