Take One Book: Literature based English

November 13 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

£120 + VAT (£144 inc.)

Course content

  • The Take One Book approach to English integrates knowledge and skills through literature-based teaching sequences. It emphasises engagement, deeper reading, high quality dialogue and purposeful writing.
  • The planning framework, originally devised as part of an action research project, has been refined in collaboration with our partner schools. Learning is contextualised and skills are embedded. Language study, reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension are interwoven through the Take One Book sequences, which starts with exploring the potential of the text, and then moves through a series of incremental stages to scaffold deeper understanding and support writing.
  • Area of focus:
  • Outline of the Take One Book framework
  • Selecting texts and identifying text potential
  • Before reading: hook and orientation
  • During reading: explore, explain, expose
  • After reading: review and reflect
  • Reading strategies: which, why, when?
  • Inspiring writing
  • Wider learning opportunities
  • Using journals and floor books
  • Delegates receive three books and sequences (picture book, fiction, poetry)
  • Website with over 40 sequences launching in September. See the exemplar units takeonebook.org.
