Chris Wooding

PALE

Forskning visar att högläsning stärker både starka och svaga läsare.

Resultaten i läsförståelse ökar.

Alla elever är på samma ställe i boken.

Vi kan diskutera handling och innehåll tillsammans, alla förstår.

Ni behöver inte läsa boken hemma på fritiden.

Varför högläsning i gymnasiet?

Vi kommer läsa en hel bok tillsammans under några lektioner.

Ni kommer inte tvingas läsa högt, bara följa med i texten och diskutera innehållet.

 

Under lästillfällena råder LÄSFRID,

alla är tysta och lyssnar och om någon behöver gå ut - smyg ut utan att störa.

By nineteen he had signed his first book deal. When he left university he began to write full-time, and he has been doing it professionally all his adult life.

Now thirty-nine, Chris has written over twenty books, which have been translated into twenty languages, won various awards and been published around the world. He writes for film and television, and has several projects in development.

 

Chris lives in London.
