The Campus which took place in Prague from 8th to 15th May, 2017, represented an important moment in the implementation of the Erasmusplus KA2 project “Handbook for RSP Readersl”. Five students and two teachers for each participating Country (Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia), met in the Czech capital to test methods and techniques to motivate reading.
Our project's learning academy just started in Praha! Partners selected 5 pupils from each school, and accompanied with their mentors they will work closely on selected motivational stories at Praha-campus. Partners will implement motivational activities, best practices and methods in order to define efficient ways to contribute to RSP readers population. Some activities included in workshops are for e.g.: brainstorming, group projects, reading games, reading cycles, creative writing etc.

On 5th April 2017, Nahorni High School organized a culture night in the Kamen Theatre in Prague. It all started with drama performance called Project Billy which was created and performed by the school drama group. The programme went on with the students’ public reading. They introduced their texts written during this school year in the Creative Writing lessons. Both the performers and the audience enjoyed themselves so we have decided to come with a similar event one more time in June 2017.
Millions of children throughout Europe enter secondary education able to read, but not well enough to do well in school. Their reading is hindered by obstacles they cannot overcome by themselves. They need the help of competent others, especially professional teachers. With specialized support, these young people can develop good, even excellent literacy skills.

The first questionnaire results have arrived!
As part of the project, a research on reading literacy was conducted using a questionnaire, a tool convenient for several reasons: the possibility of reaching an unlimited number of respondents at their convenience, the anonimity of the respondents and the ability to quantify their responses and draw conclusions from the results.
Project study on reading habits questionnaire included 8131 participants from various secondary schools in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Italia and Croatia. The survey was conducted during November and December, 2016.
Countries prepared their national reports and our joint report is almost done.
