In order to achieve the above objectives, the project trains educators of boys aged 11-15 (including literacy and special education teachers, and school librarians) by engaging in a number of activities.
Partners will conduct research to identify current trends and state of the art in reading promotion for boys. The needs of boys in partner countries will be examined via focus groups, desk research and interviews with key stakeholders. Key programs and sample activities for reading promotion for teenage boys will be identified and evaluated. A toolkit will be developed, teachers will be trained and activities will be integrated in real classrooms in partner countries.
