Learning and Teaching Scotland, in conjunction with the Scottish Book Trust, has commissioned Blake Stevenson to carry out a research project . The research will look at the impact of author events on the confidence, enjoyment and attainment of young people’s literacy skills in primary and secondary schools across Scotland.
In order to provide a thorough overview, Learning and Teaching Scotland want to hear the opinions of as many teachers as possible and are encouraging teachers to complete the survey between now and 11 July. The survey can be found at http://www.snapsurveys.com/swh/surveypreview.asp?k=130468635906
The findings from the research will be published in spring 2012.
