Teresa Cremin - Reading for Pleasure: Building readers for life
- This evidence-informed webinar, drawing on the Open University's research into reading for pleasure, will offer practical ways forward to support the development of readers who not only can, but do choose to read and find enjoyment in the process.
It is widely recognised that children who read for pleasure improve their life chances, not just academically, but also in relation to their wellbeing and relationships. Research has shown however that children in England read less often and don’t enjoy reading as much as their counterparts in other countries.
It will explore:
* The benefits and challenges of reading for pleasure
* Ways to develop richer repertoires of children’s literature and other texts
* Strategies for getting to know your children as readers EYFS-Year 6
* An effective RfP pedagogy
Such a pedagogy includes the creation of relaxed ‘social reading environments’ in schools, where children and their teachers read together, both aloud and independently, discuss what they are reading and share recommendations informally. Through sharing 'books in common' and something of their own journeys as readers, communities of engaged readers are built.
