Grade 11: Book Club- Mega Presentation

Grade 11: Book Club- Mega Presentation

Dear Parents,

In a world that is fixated on gadgets, the value of reading seems to have been largely side-tracked. With the need to bring back books and the world of possibilities that they can open for children, we started out with the idea of a Book club. Our belief was that “(t)here is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book” (Frank Serafini).
 
However, over the two years that we kept imposing the Book club we realised 2 things: first, that we were not only adding to the decided aversion that some students had for books but forcing them to read things that they neither enjoyed nor understood; second, that we were not really cultivating the joy of reading by making an arbitrary number of books compulsory for students and linking it to the report card. A review of the Book club, however, has been done; and the format and procedures have been revised to make the process more student friendly.
 
Students will now have book presentation targets, instead of book reading targets. Students will make 4 presentations in their book club slots across the year. Teachers will send an invite to parents to attend one of these presentations – called a Mega-presentation.
 
Please refer to Curricle Site for details of Book Club- Mega Presentation Slot.
 
Research in the field of Education proves that involvement of parents bolsters the child’s self-esteem. Keeping this in mind, we wanted to make sure that the parents stay involved in the child’s reading process as well. Please be sure to come to school when the invite comes your way. It will motivate your child to read and also foster their willingness to make an impressive presentation – a skill at which they are also being trained at the school. We look forward to your enthusiastic participation in this school initiative.
