Why is this course valuable? “Teenagers who read in their spare time know 26% more words than those who never read.” —Institute of Education; Centre for Longitudinal Studies (2017).
Looking for a way to get your reluctant readers avidly devouring books? It can be hard to tear children/young people away from their screens so that they can discover for themselves the flights of imagination to be found in books. This course is designed to help you with this task by using the almost addictive online media that they are already using and making best use of Accelerated Reader if you have it. Session one will be based around utilising your AR software with great tips for non AR users for free resources you can use. Examples of new titles for possible addition to your stock will be showcased with an emphasis on exciting motivating books for all abilities and interests in session two and session three will introduce ideas for using websites, apps and social media in school.
