Project teachers are currently finishing the activity of testing each other’s work methodologies with a purpose of perfecting and measuring their impact on RSP students for our Handbook. Methodologies developed by our project teams are detailed instructions and useful tools for each teacher willing to improve his teaching methods, raise student involvement and excitement about reading and, of course, for the teacher devoted to encourage and motivate the RSP readers in his class.
Pavlína Vočková, teacher and project participant from the Czech Republic, sent us her experience after one of the classes in which she tried out a new methodology that involved creating graffiti and short videos related to the theme of the book they worked on.
When it comes to creative tasks, my students are usually full of ideas. That is why I did not have any doubts about fulfilling the task of shooting short videos with graffiti. But they did much better than I had supposed! In the school, there were many places whose atmosphere was surprisingly changed by those graffiti. We really enjoyed watching videos at the end of the lesson. The students appreciated each other´s works which made me really satisfied.”
Take a look at a compilation of lovely videos and photos Czech students from Střední škola Náhorní created as a result of a new methodology implemented by their teachers...
On October 2nd our project teams met with smiling faces and determined minds. We rolled up our sleeves and gave our very best to actively and creatively contribute to each point of our 3-day agenda. And the outcomes were amazing!
Take a look at our video from the meeting!
In our second project newsletter you will see many creative school activities and competitions, important talks and useful meetings.
Take a look on how our small international team dreams big, works hard and progresses in its strong intention to motivate young (non)readers.
Millions of children throughout Europe enter secondary education able to read, but not well enough to do well in school. Their reading is hindered by obstacles they cannot overcome by themselves. They need the help of competent others, especially professional teachers. With specialized support, these young people can develop good, even excellent literacy skills.
