Dyslexic Book Club Part 4: The Film Issue

So welcome back after the summer. I have been taking the time to read some fiction over the summer. One of the ways it is really easy to get dyslexic teenagers reading more difficult books is to introduce books that they have already seen the films of. This is also the best way to get through that brick that you have been set for school exams! And yes the teacher will tell you not to watch the film as it will be different from the book but it is a great way to get over the initial hurdle of reading it and you can learn how to do the comparison study by knowing what it different from the book and the film!

One Day by David Nicholls is a clever book that will appeal to students who like dates and diaries as it is set very much around time and the passing of the years! A single day every year and the changes to each others lives.

Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda is a great way to get students into international fiction as it is originally translated from French - A very French style story with lots of character development and ways to really develop your understanding of people and their relationships. I think this is the first translated book I read which got me on to many after! It would be great to combine with a french lesson class too...

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is an interesting mix of adventure, life turning events and an interesting portrait of old age all set around a circus! Who hasn't wanted to run away with a circus! 

The Help by Kathryn Stockett shows why it can't always be easy to write a book - sometimes you really have to stick your neck out to talk about the world you see around you and what's wrong with it!

 

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg is one of the earliest books I remember reading and I have read it many times since - I don't think you can get a better recommendation of a book if you can re-read it again and again over 15 years... A very easy book to read and again one that fixes itself around dates.

Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller is the other side of school - what the teachers get up too! It was so much easier to read this book after I saw the film.

 

Until next issue happy reading for all but especially all those Dyslexic Teenagers out there who have out grown baby books!
