Read to succeed

The ability to read and to comprehend text is a fundamental skill, required for success in school and later in life. In national and international surveys (PISA and others), it has come to our attention that the reading ability among pupils is on the decline. This fact imposes a great challenge for our schools and teachers – what are we to do, to thwart this negative trend? Finding methods that stimulate the curiosity for reading is of the utmost importance. Through development of systems and strategies that target how pupils relate to reading, we hope to turn the tide.
An unfortunate but general development is that the difference between sexes is increasing, with boys getting left behind. This is disturbing and may ultimately become a mechanism of exclusion in society.
With this project, involving children aged 6-12 years and their teachers, (preschool and primary school) four schools from Finland, Germany, Slovenia and the Czech Republic wish to exchange experiences through international cooperation. We want to trade experiences with others and find models that can improve on the pupils’ reading ability. At the same time we want to develop the teachers’ pedagogical competence regarding reading and multi literacy.
The reading projects are performed in the native language of the school, but all documentation will be in English in order to be able to share the results.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
Strengthen the teachers’ pedagogical competence regarding reading through international interaction
Develop the schools’ strategies regarding reading ability and multi literacy
Develop the pupils’ reading ability and reading comprehension
Stimulate curiosity for reading and create a positive reading environment in schools
Develop methods that help not so strong readers
Support the pupils’ skills in interpretation, production and evaluation of texts
Develop critical thinking regarding different types of texts
Develop an ethical and reflecting reading ability in a world of cultural diversity
Support schools working with reading and the difference between the home language and school language of the pupil
Stimulate reading with the aid of technical devices
This project activates teachers and pupils. In all of the participating schools different kinds of reading projects and activities are performed among the pupils. The teachers of the schools discuss and self-evaluate their activities in reading starting from various themes. At the project meetings thoughts are exchanged as well as best practice experiences by presentations and workshops. During the project meetings benchmarking of the host school´s function is carried out.
1. Preschool (pupils aged 6) and reading
2. Reading skills and reading comprehension
3. Reading and pupils with special needs – methods for testing
4. Reading and pupils with different home languages
