Abstract

Have you ever noticed the different ways that children respond to texts, and wondered why? Have you ever wanted to analyse how children think about a story and wished that you knew how to help them to think more deeply? This minibook describes some of the ways in which children respond to, and understand, texts. It has been written to help teachers recognise common but unbalanced reading responses and gives valuable advice about how to coach children to engage with stories in more effective and balanced ways. This short book will change the way that you think about reading. Read it and you will see the pupils you teach in a totally new way.
