Framework for whole school wide reading practice

June 22, 2021


 This article discusses applying the author, Dr Anne Whisken’s, PhD research findings to exploration of ways that wide reading education might become an explicit practice across the curriculum in secondary schools. It suggests that informed learning ideas (Bruce, 2008) might be adapted to overcome the problem of how to create a whole school reading culture in which students experience a holistic approach to development of their own wide reading strategies. A Framework for Whole School Wide Reading Practice and a professional development model, Informed Learning PAR for Wide Reading Practice, are explored.
