14.45-15.15 Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer: Exploring Challenging Picturebooks in Education

What should students read? The choice of texts in the classroom has important pedagogical implications for both novice and experienced readers. Children need reading material with potential to challenge them cognitively and emotionally, develop their ability to understand and enhance their joy and motivation for reading. Through theoretical considerations, picturebook analysis and empirical studies in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in different countries, Exploring Challenging Picturebooks in Education investigates the impact of picturebooks on learning processes and the development of multimodal literacy competencies.

15.15-15.45 Janice Bland: Picturebooks that challenge the young English language learner

Deep reading of a challenging picturebook requires reading between the lines, guessing and predicting, leading to in-depth learning and critical literacy. Janice Bland presents the challenges and the opportunities that are involved in sharing picturebooks in the primary-school language classroom. Two picturebooks are explored, examining first a picturebook that seems designed to overtly teach the young learner, then comparing this to a non-didactic picturebook that seems to offer the challenge of creativity, critical thinking, and affective involvement.
