Description:

We’ll look at how to encourage young people to read by telling them inspiring stories of real people whose lives were changed by reading. We’ll learn how to use positive role models to help motivate students to read more.

We’ll hear about some of the interesting and practical ways New Zealand teachers are improving their students’ reading levels and using reading to bring families together. And we’ll look at ways you could do that in your school.

“David was wonderful – really inspiring and so humble – by far the best speaker we have had talking about reading and writing. I want to read his books now!”
