    Understanding children’s reading: At school and at home

    19:00 - 20:30University of Reading

    Room G01, Building L022, London Road Campus, Reading, RG1 5AQ

    We all recognise how crucial reading is for children to do well at school and later on in the workplace. But what does research tell us about why it’s important, what children and young people should be reading, and what happens if they don’t read? Also what about children and young people who speak a language other than English at home?

    Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, bilingual or not, this public lecture from the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism will have something for you!
