Reading for Pleasure

The aim of this network is to allow teachers to come together to reflect upon their identity as readers. This process will allow teachers to extend their repertoire of children’s literature and therefore classroom practice. 

This is an opportunity for you to develop your own evidence based practice whilst also providing a space and time for you to enjoy and engage with a range of children’s texts.

Our project builds on extensive research led by Professor Teresa Cremin from the Open University.  Included in your course fee is a copy of ‘Building Communities of Readers', which describes the research in an accessible and lively way, aiming to improve children's enjoyment of and attainment in reading.

The structure of the sessions will be as follows: -
Date: Monday 5 March 2018
Phase 1: Background to the project and getting started and planning 

Date: Wednesday 20 June 2018
Phase 2: Developing plans and exploring strategies

Date : Date to be determined by the group
Phase 3:Sharing outcome and next steps
