Reading for pleasure

Reading for Pleasure is surely the entitlement of every child, yet how can we foster readers’ desire and engagement? Our research, a two phase OU/UKLA project, examined children’s and teachers’ reading lives, and established effective ways to support Reading for Pleasure (RfP). Advice on navigating the web-site can be found here.

You can find out more about the 25 schools we worked with, the evidence we gathered, and the approaches we developed from ‘About this project’. You can explore the findings, and Examples of Teachers’ RfP Practice that reflect them, by clicking on the five findings circles.

This RfP web space aims to support a vibrant professional community of teachers, student teachers, librarians, teaching assistants and literacy coordinators.
