The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Shadowing Scheme

The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the oldest and most prestigious children's book awards in the United Kingdom.  The awards seek to respectively recognise outstanding writing and illustration for children.  The shadowing scheme is a reading for pleasure initiative, that engages thousands of children and young people introducing them to different styles of books and genres as they shadow the medal shortlists. 

This webinar will be hosted by Jen Horan, former judge for the awards and Chair of Youth Libraries Group Scotland and will provide insight into tried and tested techniques to get the most from shadowing, research findings on the benefits of involvement, and will give information about this year's inaugural celebration of the Shadowers' Choice, to be voted for and presented by shadowers. 

Suitable for experienced and new shadowing group leaders or anyone interested in children's reading development.  Jen will be joined by Charlotte Hacking, Learning Programme Leader at CLPE and Lizzie Ryder the Chair of YLG North West. This session will include opportunties for you to ask questions.
