Are you a school librarian or lead for literacy in your school? 

Are you tired of hearing “I don’t like reading” and “books are boring” or “there are no good books to read” or the biggest insult there is… “I wouldn’t be seen dead in the school library!”If this sounds familiar, then this is the webinar for you. Full of practical hints and tips on engaging reluctant readers in KS3. 

Ideas that have been tried and tested over the years and that are easy to implement. Included is some advice on using Accelerated Reader, Star Reading and Myon effectively in your school library - from someone who uses it everyday! How to get your reluctant students reading and, more importantly, keep them reading. 

We all know that this is especially challenging during these unprecedented times, so this webinar will also share some practical ideas on how to keep students engaged and reading at home.
