CLPE at the Guardian Reading for Pleasure Conference
CLPE staff Charlotte Hacking, (Learning Programmes Leader) and Darren Matthews (Primary Advisory Teacher) led a good practice workshop on the Power of Reading at this year's Reading for Pleasure Conference on 24 November, organised by the Guardian Education Centre and the British Library.
This full day Guardian Education Centre and British Library conference for primary school teachers and librarians, was to explore strategies to engage young people with reading. Speakers and participants addressed key issues such as: ideas for promoting enjoyment and engagement in reading, different forms and genres of writing and working with organisations that promote a love of reading.
The afternoon session took place at the British Library with a curator introduction to the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition, followed by an exhibition visit guided by British Library creative educators.
