Free Teachers as Readers Group.
Time to talk books, pleasure and practice!
If you are committed to developing children's desire, delight and engagement as readers join our OU/UKLA Reading Groups. Informal, friendly and supportive, teachers, librarians and support staff are welcome to join us and commit to attending all six CPD sessions across the year.
The aims of the group are:
to foster children's reading for pleasure (RfP) through supporting teachers'/members' own RfP and research-informed practice
to support the profession by building a professional community around RfP locally and online
to share teachers' resultant development work on th OU RfP website.
You will have the opportunity to explore the engaging resources on the OU Research-Rich Pedagogies free website and support members to develop their RfP pedagogy, knowledge of children's literature and the children as readers, and enable them to build reading communities within and beyond school.
There are 7 groups across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire so that you can find one close to your school or home. Sessions take place after school and details of who to contact are on each flier.
