Transforming Reading Skills in the Secondary School: Simple strategies for improving literacy - nasen spotlight (Paperback)Pat Guy (author)
Transforming Reading Skills in the Secondary School is a commonsense text designed to help practitioners working in a mainstream context. The book suggests ways to develop the underlying skills necessary for good reading through multiple pathways such as mainstream subject lessons, individual and small group support sessions, whole school initiatives, the use of reading mentors and home-school liaison opportunities. Brimming with ideas and activities, Pat Guy explores a variety of different aspects of reading, including:
- how reading is taught and why it is such an important skill for the individual
- how to motivate the reluctant reader
- the role played by the mainstream & specialist teacher
- underlying problems pupils may face
- how to increase parental involvement
- reasons why a pupil’s comprehension might be limited
- the role of the School Librarian
- the relevance to reading of vocabulary and general knowledge.
Anyone wanting to develop the reading skills of secondary pupils who struggle will find this a resource they return to time and time again.

"Brimming with ideas and activities, Pat Guy explores a variety of different aspects of reading. […] The best part of this book, to my mind, comes in the form of the advice sheets which are crammed with practical suggestions. They include a series of engaging games, comprehension help and advice for parents including a varied list of reading resources which reflect students' interests. Teachers and librarians wanting to develop the reading skills of secondary pupils who struggle will find this a resource they return to time and time again." – Parents in Touch, UK
"This is a good, practical book which should be required reading for secondary school practitioners seeking to develop effective reading skills- following its advice can only have a positive effect on whole-school attainment." - John Perry Nasen Speical
