4XR Developing Excellence in Reading project was set up to investigate the needs of high attaining readers in years 6 – 8, to identify the most effective pedagogies, to move learning on, and to increase attainment in reading. Within this frame of reference, the project sought to:
- cultivate teacher excellence and subject knowledge
- enable cross-school learning and a shared understanding of outstanding practice
- create new teaching resources to support ongoing professional learning
- further develop existing activities already tested and positively evaluated
4XR Handbook: a 96 page practical handbook documenting strategies and tools used to support the development of the 4XR Framework.
