One Day Course: Reading for Pleasure using Accelerated Reader and other means
With Bev Humphrey
Plymouth Central Library (Click for map)
Friday 21 October 9.30am to 3pm
Primary and secondary staff: including teachers, teaching assistants and school librarians.
It is not necessary for your school to be using Accelerated Reader to attend as this will only be one session.
Encouraging young people and children to read for pleasure is not always easy when there are so many competing pastimes in their lives. Your school may already be using Accelerated Reader to ramp up excitement but are you using it to your pupils’ best advantage?
This course will enhance delegates’ use of Accelerated Reader and give more in-depth knowledge so that your setting evolves into a ‘reading school’. There will be opportunities to look at how new titles and old favourites can enhance reading promotions.
By the end of the day, participants will have a better understanding of Accelerated Reader and up to date information about books and genres. You will return to school with a toolkit of online resources to help students get excited about books and bring reading into the digital world they already inhabit.
