Texts that Dr Sy-ying Lee analysed in a workshop held in April 2013 as part of "Love to Learn". Analysis can be found here http://www.slideshare.net/BMABHK/dr-syying-lees-analysis
Co-organised by Bring Me A Book Hong Kong and the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, "Love to Learn" is a collaborative non-profit series of talks and workshops designed to promote children's critical, creative, and innovative thinking whilst minimising anxiety and stress related to academic performance.
In the 2011 Progress in International Reading and Literacy Study (PIRLS), Hong Kong ranked LOWEST out of 45 regions in terms of motivation to read and family literacy. Only 12 percent of Hong Kong parents engaged in pre-school literacy activities with their children, versus the international average of 37 percent.
Through Love To Learn, we hope to show parents and teachers how easy it can be to instil a real love of reading in their children, making teaching and learning more pleasurable and less stressful for everyone involved!
