This is a task for first year students who are studying Primary Education 5 -11 years.
You have been asked to read and consider the ideas in chapter 1 of Exploring Children’s Literature by Nikki Gamble. In this chapter, Gamble refers to Chambers’ writing on the idea of the ‘enabling adult’ and the opportunities they have to:
- influence book selection
- make time for reading
- encourage responses
In relation to reading, what enabling adults did you meet growing up, and how do you feel about being the enabling adult yourself? You can respond with a comment here using your name or you can post anonymously. Or, make a note of your thoughts and share them in session with your tutor next week.
