« Back

In the Reading Corner, Just Imagine’s new monthly podcast for teachers, student teachers and librarians, was launched at the UKLA International Conference in Glasgow last weekend.

Produced for Just Imagine by former Radio 4 Executive Producer, Alison Hughes, In the Reading Corner is a magazine style programme which will address important issues about reading and children’s books, feature notable new titles and author interviews and showcase good practice in English and literacy teaching.

The first three programmes can be downloaded from Sound Cloud and are also available on our website   They will shortly be available on iTunes.

The podcasts are being produced in partnership with other key organisations including CLPE and the OU. Teacher education departments in universities across the UK are also involved and supporting materials are being produced for use on teacher training courses and for use in staff meetings in schools.

Themes for the first three programmes are Excellence in Reading, Diversity in Children’s Books, Reading and Well-Being. Look out for the following for the Autumn Term:

  • Reading for Pleasure
  • Reading in the Early Years
  • Readability
  • Reading Classic Texts including Shakespeare
  • Grammar and Reading

Happy listening!
