  9. Readers Front and Centre: Helping All Students Engage with Complex Texts

    Every teacher wants and expects their students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them, but then we'd be doing most of the "heavy lifting" - the understanding, analysis and interpretation that our students should be learning for themselves. Readers Front and Centre is an attempt to help teachers help their students take on identities as learners. Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how - and why - we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.
