Using graphic novels and picture books at key stages 2 and 3

Course description

Graphic novels and picture books for older readers have a valuable role to play in developing students’ reading skills and motivation and their wider learning, but many people lack the knowledge and confidence to exploit them effectively. This practical, hands-on course for primary and secondary teachers, librarians and support staff will analyse their benefits, establish assessment and selection criteria, and identify ways to use them successfully. Delegates will explore a wide range of excellent resources.

Expected learning outcomes

  • more understanding of the value of graphic novels and picture books
  • more confidence in choosing and using them
  • opportunities to discuss issues and concerns
  • methods for using picture books and graphic novels to boost reading enjoyment
  • ways to develop speaking and listening, literacy, comprehension and thinking skills
  • ideas for supporting subject teaching and fostering literacy across the curriculum
  • ideas for creative activities
  • greater knowledge of effective titles for the library and classroom

Course leader

Anne is an independent trainer. She specialises in children’s and young people’s reading and children’s and school libraries. We have had excellent feedback from delegates who have attended her courses

Cost £100 inc. lunch

We still have places available for the course on Reading for Pleasure for KS1 and 2 on the 11th February.
