Like ‘Big Writing’, ‘Reflective Reading’ is simply a methodology. However, it is a rather marvellous one. You, Anne, are doing excellent things, but it shouldn’t be a commercial enterprise. This needs to be rolled out through Education Scotland. I don’t advocate England’s curriculum prescriptive, but this good practice really needs a wider audience. It would ensure consistency of approach and quality across Scotland, not just the pockets/people who can afford to attend this training.

Anne is so inspiring and easy to listen to. Today has whizzed by because she is engaging, energetic and creative. Anne has personally helped me to feel re-energised and I am now very keen to change things and to try out her ideas and make reading better in my classroom!
