Get involved in a research project exploring the representation of minority groups
A research project funded by the UK Literacy Association is aiming to explore the representations of ethnic minority groups, LGBTQ+ identities and characters with disabilities in the texts used to deliver the English curricula (i.e. reading, writing and spoken language) in Year 1 classes.
The project seeks to understand which are the most popular texts used in Year 1 classrooms.
For the first phase of the study, they are currently seeking Year 1 teachers, English/Literacy leads, school librarians, SLT members and other staff working in a state-funded school in England, with knowledge of their school's English curriculum to take part in the project by completing a short survey.
Eligible participants will be entered into a prize draw to win £150+ worth of books for their school from inclusive publishers, Letterbox Library.
To take part and find out more information about the project, visit www.bit.ly/Year1Texts
DEADLINE EXTENDED: The survey will now be open until 15th April.
