Skip to 0 minutes and 5 secondsWelcome to week two. Last week, we learned about the process of paired reading. This week, we're going to learn about establishing paired reading in your classroom. To do that, we'll reflect on some of the things that might improve if you use paired reading. We'll also think about some of the challenges of getting it going in the classroom, such as training the children or students in the technique. We'll look at the research behind paired reading in a little more depth. Here you'll learn about the two launch trials we run. So you can think about the evidence base in more detail. Finally, we will start to look at the resources.
