Alec visits Secondary and High Schools across the UK, offering sessions for Year 7 upwards (S1 in Scotland, Y8 in Northern Ireland). Visits are primarily to support Reading for Pleasure, rather than supporting curriculum objectives – though these will benefit too! Sessions can include traditional stories (and urban legends); poetry; extracts from modern fiction – or a mix of all these elements. Performance style sessions can be to more than one class; interactive workshop style sessions are best with a single class; both are great fun!
I thought it was fantastic. The students were really buzzing about it, and booked out all the poetry books – just what I wanted! — Teacher, Preston, 2013
Session times are normally around 45-50 minutes. Alec usually does four sessions a day. Workshop sessions could include reading poetry aloud, or group re-telling of stories.
You were absolutely brilliant. — School Librarian, Devon, 2012
He was epicness on a stick! — Student, Northern Ireland, 2011
