As part of the Active Online Reading project, we will be collating and sharing pedagogic resources focused on supporting students in developing reading skills. Although the AOR project focuses on online reading, we want to share resources the are relevant to reading offline too!

Dr Lucinda Matthews-Jones, Reader in History at Liverpool John Moores University and 2021 winner of the Royal Historical Society’s Jinty Nelson Award for Inspirational Teaching and Supervision in History, has kindly provided some materials that encourage students to engage reflectively with their reading and to deconstruct secondary sources.

If you make use of these resources then Lucie would love to hear from you on Twitter or via her university email.

Over the next few months, we’ll be sharing other resources provided by members of the AOR team and wider community. If you’d like to share your materials  for teaching reading (online or otherwise), then contact Jamie Wood.
