Literacy - Reading in pairs

Local authorities looking to use paired reading to improve literacy can now access tutor and trainer manuals and a parents' leaflet on line.

From 2005 to 2008, Learning and Teaching Scotland worked with youth volunteering organisation ProjectScotland and pilot authorities to place young volunteers aged 16-25 in schools to support the development of literacy skills through paired reading.

Based on the success of the volunteer model, LTS has launched Scotland Reads Paired Reading Partners, which will give all local authorities the opportunity to involve their young people in paired reading.
