Too often today's students are choosing not to read. Whilst it is not within a teacher’s power to pry smartphones from their hands, we can invite the students in our care to open a book for a draught of fresh air. Reading demands that we look outward, beyond the familiar boundaries of our lives. It stretches our imaginations. Reading also teaches us that we are not alone.

She will also offer strategies for helping reluctant readers engage with text and introduce you to titles sure to pique students’ interest.
