|Brief Summary of the Reading Association of Russia’s latest projects|
|Schools Where Literacy Thrives is active and well in Russia.
1. The schools that were pilot schools in the project have become schools certified by the Reading Association of Russia and continue their work in the project.
2. They have really become schools where literacy thrives as
a) students show better results/higher scores in a number of qualitative and quantitative analyses of reading conducted in recent years
b) teachers in those schools have become experts, ready not only to develop within the project but also to share their experience and knowledge with new members of the Association at a variety of off-line and on-line conferences and other events.
3. These schools are engaged in all the projects and events organised by the RAR. A number of other pilot projects were launched by the Reading Association of Russia in the certified Schools Where Literacy Thrives.
|The analysis of this project allows us to assume that the SWLT project is and will be attractive as it provides schools with real practical and very clear recommendations – certain steps that need to be taken so that two aims can be achieved.
First, those recommendations enable schools to increase the level of reading competence in children.
Secondly, they show how different aspects of a school, such as the work of teaching staff, librarians and school psychologists, can be united to work towards the same goal.
More information on the achievements of the project can be found on the RAR site:

· Reading that unites us,
· Reading from Print and Screen,
· Reading Strategies,
· The Academy of Readers’ Mastery,
· The Analyst of Reading,
· Million Pages.
The RAR is launching a new project called Million Pages that is being tested in the schools certified as SWLT. The project is quantitative research that will allow RAR to find out how many pages average school pupils of different ages read per day/per week/per month/per year. The research is inspired by the idea that school curricula on different subjects are based on certain amounts of educational texts but do not take into account the reading abilities of the learner.
The project is scheduled for February 2021 – February 2022.
