National and international research tells us that reading helps students gain better results. We also know that a positive reading environment and the freedom to choose is key to reading enjoyment and success.
Those of us working in school libraries, however, understand that choice can also be a barrier to students’ reading.
How do we enable students to choose a book that they like? Choosing a book that suits you is a skill that, like any other, needs to be learnt, practiced and refined.
At this conference, you will meet authors and practitioners as they explore and share narrative in all its formats, gender and diversity, recent research, genre preferences, and programs and strategies that work. What a wonderful choice!
Join us on 24 November to celebrate choice, diversity and student success and to acknowledge the SLAV Award Recipients for 2017.Become a SLAV member
