Introducing: Picturebook Pedagogy
Many of you will already know that accessible CPD is one of my interests - personally and professionally. You will also know that picturebooks are a big part of my life, again, both personally and professionally! So, combining the two, Picturebook Pedagogy was born!
What is Picturebook Pedagogy?
I firmly believe that we need to locate high quality children's literature at the heart of our primary practice - and the perfect way to do this, is by prioritising picturebooks!
Picturebook Pedagogy has been designed to offer manageable, high quality and accessible professional development for teachers. Picturebooks offer a wealth of opportunities for the development of a classroom culture and community of readers, all while affording the powerful potential to contextualise and integrate many of the outcomes and objectives of the primary curriculum.
Let's harness the power of picturebooks and watch the learning unfold!
