Reading groups can be a great way for teachers to stay connected and support each other in their professional development. They allow you to explore a topic of mutual interest together, reflect on the underlying research and discuss how you could use it in your own teaching,
If you run a teacher reading group, or are interested in starting one, we can help. We have support materials for books covering the latest research in education and tried and tested classroom practice, and we can also offer discounts for staff and school purchases. Contact us to find out more.
