Chapter: Working with Reading to Learn at Undergraduate Level in Spain: A Learning Journey

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.41263


The growing success of R2L in Sweden attracted the interest of Danish educators, so Claire Acevedo and Ann-Christin Lövstedt applied for funding from the European Union for a multi-national training program. They eventually recruited five teams of educators from Sweden, Denmark, Scotland, Spain and Portugal for a three-year project, known as Teacher Learning for European Literacy Education, or TeL4ELE. In Chapter 10, Rachel Whittaker, Isabel García-Parejo and Aoife Ahern describe how this project has blossomed in Spain into a range of activities, including pre-service teacher education and service-learning.
