Reading Conference for Parents

Reading – What’s my role? Saturday 29th September 10.00am – 3.00pm, The King James Hotel, Edinburgh

The Literacy Team at Education Scotland is hosting a free conference for parents.

Once children have mastered the basics of learning to read, many parents are concerned about how best to develop their child’s skills and encourage a love of books.  The conference will support parents in helping children to successfully negotiate an information rich world and to become readers for life.

Nicola Morgan, the award-winning author, will deliver the keynote address.  The conference will explore some of the perceived barriers to reading and discuss how parents can best support their children.

This ties in neatly to the Dunbar Reads Together project and could provide parents with an ideal opportunity to further enhance reading at home.
