UKLA and LoveReading launch a new scheme for teachers
We are delighted to announce that the UKLA is embarking upon an even deeper partnership with our friends at LoveReading. Would you be interested in becoming a Teacher Reviewer for them?
It is LoveReading’s mission to get more people reading by getting them excited about books. LoveReading4Schools is a critical part of this and one they take very seriously. As a community they believe they have a social responsibility to support time-strapped teachers and librarians in schools to help engender a life-long love of learning in their students.
To this end LoveReading are re-launching LoveReading4Schools this December. The new website comes with tons of added functionality and will have a fully updated set of reading recommendation lists for every year group from Early Years to YA books. In addition, they will be regularly publishing other lists of great relevance and importance for schools today including lists of Inspirational Books, Cultural Books, Reluctant Readers Recommendations and Mental Health and Wellbeing.
LoveReading’s job is one of curation, presenting a selected list of regular reading recommendations for their audiences. These selections are delivered by the team of editorial experts and are complemented by their consumer reading review panels.
This partnership will now include us working with them to help recruit a Teachers Panel of Teacher Reviewers. This panel will work with LoveReading to review books supplied by publishers, with the aim of them then choosing Teachers Books of the Month.
If you are a current UKLA member and interested in becoming part of their panel, you can sign up here.
