Reading Agency launches challenge for teachers

The Reading Agency has launched an online reading challenge for teachers in partnership with the Open University.

Called the Teachers’ Reading Challenge, the new website utilises research and resources from the OU’s Reading for Pleasure programme and the Reading Agency’s Summer Reading Challenge.

The online platform aims to create a reading community for teachers, supporting them to deepen their knowledge of children’s books and reading.

They are invited to read and review books, promote best practice on supporting reading for pleasure in the classroom, and join discussions to share advice and recommendations.

Karen Napier, c.e.o. of the Reading Agency commented: "The resources provided by Research-Rich Pedagogies are an invaluable asset, and we hope that the challenge platform will provide a fun, collaborative support network for teachers across the country; enabling them to explore children's literacy in depth, exchange advice and recommendations—and enjoy some new books.”

Teachers can sign up to take part in the challenge from 9am today (14th August).
