Reading Picture Books Is Serious Fun
Tulk, Sara
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v4 n2 p89-95 Sep 2005
This narrative explores how picture books can be used in the literacy classroom for pupils aged between 11-12 years. It discusses the links children can make when interpreting pictures and then returning to text. It highlights pupils' ability to understand metaphor and narrative structure when reading picture books, and how they can show their understanding of complex ideas through drawing pictures themselves. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
