Picture books are much more than the mere combination of pictures and books. In fact, it is an amalgamation of rich visual stimulus, unlimited imaginative space and deep textual significance. This talk will attempt to stretch our understanding of using picture books to learn reading and even to unlearn reading, both in the classroom and home contexts. Whether you are an an educator or a parent, come and join us to “give picture books a Like”, and learn about the different pedagogies when utilising ordinary picture books or graded picture readers. Dr Tan will also share his insights on how to engage the young reader in the family.
This talk will be bilingual – mainly in Chinese but with English explanations.
