Which Book and Why Consultancy

This bespoke consultancy is provided by the editors of the very highly regarded 'Book Bands for Guided Reading' and 'Which Book and Why' who are leading experts in literacy internationally.

It will support teachers engaged in teaching literacy in Key Stage 1 to:

  • make sound judgements about which books are used for what purpose;
  • know how to use books to give children the best possible context for learning.

It will encompass a theoretical overview of reading; how the purpose of a guided reading lesson can shape planning, preparation, structure and choices of text; the use of decodable texts for teaching phonics; supporting the development of comprehension through reading for meaning and information; and creating and managing guided reading libraries.
