Project details

This project proposes an approach on reading by sharing reading experiences, doing podcasts on selected stories, authors’ biographies and illustrations. Teamwork is the key to this collaborative project. Each pupil will be part of a multicultural team and they will share a common story which shall be selected randomly by a teacher. Schools must select common story books from their school libraries. Using a mind map they will outline the story main features. A survey will be applied at the beginning and at the end of the project to assess the results on the reading motivation.
