Dear Friends,

School libraries to get popular

Your school library may now be stocked up with the latest from the printed
world. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) plans to introduce a
reading project for upper-primary and secondary classes very soon. This
calls for upgrading school library allocating a reasonable sum of the annual
budget for buying books, CDs and reference material. Children should be
encouraged to visit the library whenever they want and a number of notices
put up to encourage children to read books and inform them on books
available in the library. Vocabulary-building games can be a part of the
collection.
*
*Teachers can give students books of one genre which can be read by the
whole class. The books under this project should not be taught in class but
introduced through activities. “It should be left to students to read at
their own pace. Teachers may, however, choose to assess a child’s progress
in reading the book by asking for verbal or written progress reports,
looking at the diary entries of students, engaging in a discussion about the
book, giving a short quiz or a worksheet about the book/ short story,” the
board said.
