IBBY-Yamada 2016: South Africa
Intertwining literacy and literature - finding common ground: a policy workshop
IBBY South Africa together with PRAESA, winner of the IBBY-Asahi Award 2014, will co-host a one-day workshop to discuss and influence efforts to develop a reading culture in South Africa. Topics include:
- The potential and actual role of adult and children’s literature to give direction to projects in children’s bi-literacy development and reading promotion.
- The disabling distinction between “learning to read” and “reading to learn” for reading culture development in Africa
- The support by government, publishers, universities, NGOs and other relevant bodies for multilingual literature (African languages and English)
