What is this course about?
This microlearning provides strategies to integrate reading for pleasure into everyday literacy work. “Research demonstrates that reading for pleasure contributes to increased attainment in literacy and numeracy (1), enriched narrative writing (2) and a wider vocabulary and knowledge of the world. Nurturing reading for pleasure is a professional, moral and social responsibility.” Cremin, Teresa (2019).
