Young People’s Shared Reading

In 2015 Collected Works CIC piloted a project with young people aged 12 – 16 adopting the ‘Read Aloud’ model, setting up reading groups in both secondary schools and libraries.
  In 2016, working closely with teaching colleagues, we produced a Site Specific performance of Chapters 1 and 2 of Great Expectations for Year 10 pupils from Patcham High, with the aim to improve perceptions of the text and increase enthusiasm for embarking upon the book.
