Enjoyment and Choice

Enjoyment and Choice is one of the organisers in the Curriculum for Excellence Literacy and English Experiences and Outcomes for Reading. This places importance on children having an element of choice in what they read.

In order to do this and to increase motivation, classes were presented with a range of stimulating reading materials at an appropriate level of challenge and they were asked to pick what they wanted to read. Giving students this choice allowed them to choose books that spoke to their interests and  students were engaged from the beginning of the activity.
