Promoting a Culture of Literacy, by Diane W. Frankenstein IS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, The Official Magazine

Read a book. Ask a question, Start a conversation
Diane Frankenstein considers ways of promoting a culture of literacy in a school community through conversational reading. Conventional wisdom has become so focused on the importance of reading to children that it has somewhat ignored the critical component of the importance of talking with children about what they read.  As important as it is to read aloud to children, a child’s desire to read comes from being read to and talking about books. http://www.dianefrankenstein.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/IS-article-by-D.Frankenstein-2.15.11.pdf
