Choose Usborne for your School - Reason #8 Teacher Resources

30th October 2018

We have thousands of Usborne Organisers across the UK and Europe working with schools to inspire a lifelong love of reading in their pupils, and to help teachers and parents to find the very best books for their children.

There are so many reasons why working with an Usborne Organiser can hugely benefit your school and this month we're looking at teacher resources.

Looking for a new class read to study? Your local Usborne Organiser can provide you with teaching resources for a range of fiction titles and can offer advice on the themes covered in the titles, brief synopses of them, and the year groups that these resources may be suitable for. (As a general rule, the teaching resources are aimed at upper KS2 and KS3).

The titles that we currently have teacher resources for are: Yankee Girl, Freak the Mighty, Mockingbird, The Name of this Book is Secret, The Wild Folk, Where the World Ends, Kick and A Darkness of Dragons.

Want a new class set but don't have the budget for it? Your Usborne Organiser can help you to fundraise for new books in a variety of ways, and Usborne will provide additional free books based on the money raised, helping it to go that bit further.

We also have resources for one off KS1, 2 and 3 activities, ideal for getting pupils engaged in reading, and the wider world of publishing.

Your Organiser can also provide you with discussion questions for a wide range of different texts suitable from KS2 right up to KS5, ideal for library lessons or book groups.

Want to know more about how our Organisers can work with you?

Contact your local Usborne Organiser today to talk about the different resources that they can provide for you. Your Organiser can also explain the discounts they can offer you for a school order, and how they can help you to fundraise for new books.
