Education Scotland have started a new online community for Literacy and English. Their current topic is ‘Reading for Pleasure’ which you can take part in between now and the third of December.

Some questions to consider…
- Do you recognise the benefits of reading for pleasure in the learners that you work with?
- Rewards and motivation – Do reward schemes have a positive or negative impact on young readers’ motivation?
- Have cultural changes and technological advances changed children’s attitudes to reading? Are there ways to work with this?
