Kids talking to each other


Children's literature is a powerful teaching tool, useful for reinforcing reading, writing and oral communication skills. This workshop on reading aloud in the classroom is a blend of theory and practice. Original, turnkey activities are presented to enable you to exploit the pedagogical potential of reading aloud at all levels of primary education. 

A summary of the presentation and a bibliography are given to participants at the end of the workshop.

Andrée Poulin

Andrée Poulin


Andrée Poulin has written some 60 books for children. Her picture books and novels have won her several literary prizes. She started off as a journalist, and she really enjoyed telling stories based on facts, but now, as an author, she takes great pleasure in telling fictional stories. Her favourite challenge is to write books that make her readers both laugh and think. For over 12 years, she has hosted workshops in schools to help inspire a love of reading in children. She has published a training manual for teachers who want to maximize the learning opportunities that books present, entitled L’album jeunesse, un trésor à exploiter (in French only).  She is a graduate of the University of Ottawa and of Laval University. For a complete list of her works and literary prizes, visit her website.
