TI-AIE: Reading for pleasure

What this unit is about

This unit focuses on your role in developing your students’ enthusiasm for reading. The more students enjoy reading, the more they will want to read. The more opportunities they have to read, the better they will become at reading. It is a virtuous circle.

As a teacher who reads and a reader who teaches, you are an important role model and can inspire your students to delight in reading.

In this unit you will be introduced to classroom practices that will help your students to develop positive attitudes towards reading, so that they have ‘the will’ to read as well as ‘the skill’ to read.
