Event description

Description

Reading for pleasure is a social justice issue. International evidence indicates it offers cognitive, social and emotional benefits, helping children make connections with each other, their teachers, their families and the wider world. This conference will help you enrich your repertoire of children’s texts and create reading communities that connect and support young readers. The author Gill Lewis will join us, and Nikki Gamble from Just Imagine as well as Norfolk Children’s Book Centre bookshop! Workshops will be led by OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Group members offering new ideas based on their research-informed practice.

Workshops include:

Exploring children's identities as readers

The Book Buzz over the Bridge

Who owns your classroom reading environment?

Engaging parents in reading for pleasure

Reading Allowed?
