Learning with Quick Reads Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 11:35
To coincide with the recent release of six new Quick Reads titles, NIACE has published a free resource called Learning with Quick Reads, aimed at building confidence in reading and improving functional skills.
The Quick Reads short stories are written by bestselling authors and well known people, which aim to get adults who would not normally read for pleasure, interested in reading. The titles range from suspenseful crime dramas to light hearted comedies.
Learning with Quick Reads contains an array of activities that compliment reading whether it’s part of a literacy course, an informal reading group or learning in the community/workplace. The activities in this free resource have been developed using the six new Quick Reads titles for 2013 and aim to improve reading, writing, communication skills, ICT and maths. They also correspond to specific chapters of the new books and are laid out in a simple and effective way so that they can be followed easily.
Sue Southwood, Quick Reads Project Manager at NIACE, said:
"Quick Reads titles can be used to both initiate and stimulate activity in other areas, which is a key gateway to other adult learning. Learning with Quick Reads is an excellent way of incorporating various different areas of learning in an innovative and interesting way."
