"Book Talk is the jewel in the crown of our whole-school reading strategy. It supports and challenges the children's understanding and comprehension of texts, enabling them to become inspired, confident and enthusiastic readers." - Darren Smith, Head Teacher

What is Hooked on Books?

Do you want to foster a productive reading culture in your school? Do you wish the children in your classroom were engaged readers and not reluctant readers?

Find out how to get the pupils in your class ‘Hooked on Books’ with Jane Considine. It’s the Book Talk system that has impacted hundreds of classrooms across the country formatted into an exciting, one day course.

Reading is crucial to children's development and potential for success in life. Research shows that children who read books often at age 10 and continue to read through adolescence, gain higher results in maths, vocabulary and spelling tests at age 16 than those who read less regularly.

Nothing is more important in education than ensuring that every child can read well. Pupils who can read are overwhelmingly more likely to succeed at school, achieve good qualifications, and subsequently enjoy a fulfilling and rewarding career. Those who cannot will find themselves at constant disadvantage.

Key benefits of Hooked on Books:

  • Support for teachers so they know how to organise 40 minutes per day, broken down into 10 minutes of pleasure principle reading and 30 minutes for the three modes of teaching
  • Book Talk - verbal comprehension
  • Demonstration Comprehension
  • Independent comprehension
  • Pupils who know how to apply what they have learnt in demonstration comprehension to their independent work
  • Improved standards from many worked examples provided throughout the year, ranging from oral compression answers to written formal well structured pieces.
  • Children will have a clear view of how to articulate and demonstrate their understanding. Pupils will have the critical language to express themselves and use appropriate book based language
