Series: SLA Voices · Level: Secondary

Supporting reading is a vital job for all school libraries and here Adam Lancaster explains how he and his team identify new intake students with low reading ages and attitudes. He demonstrates the way in which they work with this key group to raise reading motivation and interest and shows the value of tracking the progress of particular students. By working in this way and by measuring the advances made, the library has become a key player in raising school improvement and senior leaders are impressed. It makes interesting reading.

This is a new title in our SLA Voices series of shorter works written from a personal perspective, offering fresh and direct experiences and insights.
