The mission of the READ WRITE SIG is to create a culture of reading and writing among all members of society, and to promote and foster the joy of reading and writing in students, parents and teachers.   We strive to identify areas where there is a lack of reading and writing or interest in reading and writing, investigate the reasons for it, and work on a course of action to help change those reading and writing habits.  We want to share our personal and professional experiences in encouraging children, young people,and adults to be avid readers and writers.  This includes opportunities to be involved in community events that promote Reading and Writing in the region such as the Emirates Festival of Literature, the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, and the Sharjah International Book fair, as well as educational conferences on teaching Reading and Writing.  Lastly, we want to support teachers that are motivated to improve the teaching of Reading and Writing in their classrooms.

Areas of interest to the READ WRITE SIG:

• best practices in the teaching and assessment of reading and writing

• digital storytelling and digital literacy

• creating book clubs and writing clubs

• bringing research on reading and writing into the ESL/EFL classroom

• promoting reading and writing in the Gulf region
