Reading Magazines with a Critical Eye in the Primary School

by Carolyn Swain

Magazines are a popular leisure read for young people, and are devoured both at home and in the playground, yet they do not necessarily have equal status with other texts in the classroom.  This Minibook explores how teachers can bridge the gap between home and school literacy through including magazines in the reading repertoire. Their inclusion raises the status of reading for pleasure and choice in the curriculum, whilst retaining a focus on exploring issues that relate to magazine reading.  In particular, this Minibook considers the power that magazines hold to shape identity and the impact of these popular cultural texts on pupils’ reading of the world around them. It explores the challenges that face the modern reader and suggests a range of activities to meet those demands within a supportive classroom context.
