We’re so excited to announce the launch of the Teachers’ Reading Challenge! This initiative is designed to support educators at all stages of their career, to enrich their knowledge of texts for young people (and have some fun along the way). Inspired by OU research into reading for pleasure and The Reading Agency’s children’s Summer Reading Challenge, the partnership has created a bespoke experience for teachers and others interested in promoting the reading habit in the young. Teachers are invited to sign up to the Challenge and choose their goal. You’ll be able to access a downloadable reading diary, keep track of your reading online, find book recommendations, save books onto your own wish list, take part in discussions and more!  Do join in!

To find out more download the announcement or go to the Teachers' Reading Challenge website.
