In my new post I am working with our teachers on developing our curriculum and am trying to use this (and other blogs) as a mine of information. We are presently looking at our teaching of reading and creating an atmosphere in which children see reading as pleasure as something which is a natural part of their life.
I remembered something which I first built back in the summer of 2010 when I was exploring the use of Google Maps to support literacy teaching. The idea behind it is that the map shows the main location of the events in a children or teenage book.
Please use it with your class as well as adding any new books which you think other classes might enjoy!
