4 - Inspiring Reading and Writing through John Lewis' Christmas Advert 2015
This blog post written with @ReadingExplorer was one of the most popular with over 11k views. It was amazing to see how many teachers used the ideas from this blog and then tweeted and emailed examples of work! Although, the video won't be relevant post Christmas, it is the approach towards the video that I feel is more valuable. I met John a few years ago, after he led some training at my school. I believe we both have a unique and interesting approach to using different forms of media in the classroom. If you would like to know more about the joint approach we have to a range of media and how it can be used to improve reading and writing in the classroom, please have a look at our joint conference we are leading in Newcastle, Peterborough and South Wales in 2016 -
