Get Involved

Have you used any of our PEPELT picturebook suggestions and teaching ideas and would like to share your experiences? Well, we would love to hear from you. In autumn 2020 PEPELT is launching its blog to offer a platform for teachers, librarians, teacher trainers and researchers to share their experiences of teaching primary English by means of picturebooks. We believe this platform will be the first of its kind. Our aim is to bring the rich and international practitioners’ voices to the PEPELT project. If you want to get involved, read our guidelines and complete the online submission form. We look forward to your submission.

Good Luck. The PEPELT Team
