To help teachers develop their reading repertoire of children's texts
We’re delighted to let you know that The Reading Agency’s Teachers’ Reading Challenge website, created in partnership with the Open University, has just been launched.
The Challenge is free and will run from 14 August to 31 October. Teachers can sign up to join at any time from 9am on Friday at: www.teachersreadingchallenge.org.uk.
This initiative is the first national teachers’ reading challenge of its kind, utilising resources from the OU’s Reading for Pleasure programme and The Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge. It aims to help teachers develop their reading repertoire of children’s texts and offers resources and advice on enhancing children’s reading experiences.
The Teachers’ Reading Challenge invites teachers to read and review books, promote best practice on supporting reading for pleasure in the classroom and join discussions to share advice. They will also have access to the Summer Reading Challenge’s Book Sorter – 1,185,204 million books have been added and reviewed by children for children. An amazing resource for teachers to explore children’s choices.
Head to www.teachersreadingchallenge.org.uk to join.
