Critical Reading of Magazines materials now available FREE to members!

Friday, March 30, 2012

UKLA and Egmont UK have collaborated to produce high quality professional development and teaching materials with the aim of  developing the critical reading of magazines in KS2 classrooms ( although we feel they would be of interest in KS3 and ITE as well). The practical workshops aim to promote the critical reading of magazines in schools, an understanding of why and how magazines are produced, and to emphasise the value of including children’s magazines in an inspiring reading curriculum.

All you have to do is log in as a member and then download the materials from the UKLA resources section here. If you ask Egmont will supply free copies of their magazines for 8–11 year olds – ‘Toxic’ for boys and ‘Go Girl’ for girls to support the work in classrooms.
