Reading Rocks grew from a community of educators and librarians sharing and talking on Twitter about getting every pupil reading. It’s a place to share ideas for teaching reading and writing; reviewing and recommending books and sharing ways to grow a love of reading.
Reading Rocks has grown a lot since the first event in October 2016. We now provide Saturday CPD events in various places across the country. We also provide CPD as Pop up events, school based training INSET days/staff meetings/coaching), event speaking and bespoke packages. RR is now writing teaching resources based on books. Many will be available on this website and some through publishers directly.
Reading Rocks believes in constantly growing, adapting and seeking to provide the support that teachers need and request. Do contact us if you think we may be able to support you in: building a Reading For Pleasure; growing parental engagement in reading; writing teaching sequences for book-based learning, or with any further requests.
At Reading Rocks, we are super keen to bring together schools with publishers and their authors and illustrators. As publishers, if you wish to work with us on this, please do get in touch.
