Share your memories of reading in school.

Literature’s lasting impression:  share your memories.

Join the survey to share your memories of reading in school - Tues 1st November at The Forum (in the Atrium), Norwich 10.30am to 3.30pm


Do you remember ‘reading in class’ at school? 

What ‘set texts’ did you read?

Maybe you read Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird or Lord of the Flies?

What mattered most – the novel, or how your teacher presented it?

What do you think about reading novels in this way?


Alternatively, complete the survey online here:

The survey is part of research looking at reading novels together in schools, universities and book groups. Your comments will inform a better understanding of what makes reading together an enjoyable and powerful experience. We look forward to hearing from you.

A research project led by Dr John Gordon (UEA), funded by the British Academy.
