PROMOTING READING – this conference is for librarians, English teachers and all those involved in developing readers in prep schools.
Tricia Adams was, until recently, Director of the School Library Association. She is a lifelong librarian with a passion to get children reading for the pleasure and benefit it brings. Tricia’s sessions will look at the variety of research available on the benefits of reading, as well as practical ideas on how to use limited resources to create the best reading for pleasure experience for pupils, including looking at the library environment. She will also share some of the latest good reads. Tricia likes her sessions to be interactive, and there will be opportunities for delegates to ask questions about specific problems.
Gill Lewis, the award-winning author of Sky Hawk, White Dolphin, Moon Bear, Scarlet Ibis, Gorilla Dawn, A Story like the Wind, Sky Dancer and the Puppy Academy series, will talk about her work.
The day also offers a chance for librarians and teachers to network.
