Welcome to the Power of Reading website
This site provides access to the bank of teaching sequences and materials developed to complement CLPE's highly successful Power of Reading training. To access the site and the resources you need to have a subscription. If your school is taking part in the Power of Reading you will receive a subscription included in the cost of the training.
There are currently 157 teaching sequences and more than 1000 examples of practice on this site. The teaching sequences guide planning and help teachers to select the best teaching approaches to explore high quality texts in depth, enhancing reading comprehension and providing meaningful contexts and purposes for writing.
At CLPE we work to emphasise the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings. The Power of Reading is our flagship project which is underpinned and based on our research and experience.
