Widening Students’ Reading Repertoire

6 Jul

I am currently working on a project with students in my school’s book club to create a blog to record their reading recommendations.  The project is progressing nicely, with students offering passionate and persuasive reviews of texts that they adore.

I have, however, noticed that many of my students tend towards fantasy texts and those that explore adolescent angst.  While there is nothing wrong with these types of texts, I am keen to broaden my students horizons.  In pursuit of this goal, I am interested in the reading recommendation slides posted by Beth Kemp to her blog.  As the book club becomes stronger and larger, I am keen to have students work on posters like these that can be strategically located around the school and in the library, guiding students to make more daring choices when it comes to their reading repertoire.
