11 Summary of Session 5

In this session you have read about the value and nature of RfP pedagogy which encompasses reading aloud, reading time, book talk and recommendations in a highly social reading environment. These interrelated aspects of provision need to be Learner-led, Informal, Social and with Texts that tempt (LIST), whilst also professionally nuanced and responsively shaped.

You are now in a position to identify your strengths, enrich your provision, and document its impact on children’s volitional reading. This will help as you seek to develop engaged communities of readers, which is the focus of Session 6.

By continuing to understand yourself as a reader, your own practices and preferences and the places and people involved (which vary according to text and context), you will be developing a richer understanding of the social, affective and relational nature of being a reader. Such an enhanced personal and professional awareness will help you nurture engaged, self-motivated and interactive young readers.
