UKLA, OU and Egmont Reading for Pleasure Teacher Conference

International evidence indicates reading for pleasure offers significant benefits cognitively, socially and emotionally. This conference will help you develop your knowledge of children’s literature and create an authentic, flexible and interactive reading for pleasure pedagogy that supports young readers! The author SF Said will join us! SF Said's first book, Varjak Paw, won the Smarties Prize for Children's Literature. The sequel, The Outlaw Varjak Paw, won the Blue Peter Book of the Year, while his third book, Phoenix, was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, and nominated for both the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals. We will be announcing the winner of the 2019 Egmont Teacher Awards. All workshops will be led by members of our OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Groups offering challenges and new ideas based on their work.
