As a leading children’s publisher, encouraging more children to enjoy reading drives everything that we do at Egmont. With our wonderfully broad range of books and YA novels we hope to inspire all children to become proud and enthusiastic readers.
But we can’t do it alone.
It is with this in mind that we would like to celebrate the triumphant teachers who successfully promote children’s reading for pleasure, both within and beyond the classroom. To do so we are partnering up with The Open University and the UK Literacy Association to present the Reading for Pleasure Teacher Awards!
The Open University and the UK Literary Association have worked together to research the significance of teachers being readers, and ways to build active, excited communities of young readers. As well as reward amazing teachers, both organisations are keen to profile and develop research in this area.
Entrants are asked to submit a research-informed case study on how you have encouraged children to read for pleasure including details of context, research inspiration and rationale, aims, outline, evidence of impact and reflection.
