This training will help you to:

  • engage with research and understand the benefits for your pupils of reading for enjoyment.
  • examine a range of approaches, including choosing and using whole texts.
  • develop an action plan for creating a community of readers in your school.
  • implement this plan as an action research project, involving critical reflection and evidence gathering to share with the group.
