The Teachers' Reading Challenge is an opportunity for school and library staff to expand their knowledge of children's books and develop their understanding of reading for pleasure pedagogy.
Run by The Reading Agency in partnership with the Open University, the Challenge invites participants to join a supportive and inspired community of educators and readers, set their own reading goal, share recommendations, discuss best practice, access resources, and record their knowledge.
The Challenge is designed for Reader Teachers. Put simply, these are teachers who read and readers who teach! This includes every professional who contributes to a child's reading journey, from the teacher who makes time for classroom reading, to the librarian who recommends a child their first book, to the Student Teachers on their way to becoming the reading advocates of the future. The 2021 Teachers' Reading Challenge launches across the UK on 10 July.
