TEEN READ WEEK : CHERS’ TOP PICKS

 

For the second time, English Department teams up with the Integrated Learning Resource Center in promoting Teen Read Week 2009. Similar to the American Library Association, these departments celebrate TRW from Oct 18 – Oct 24, 2009.

In order to promote reading among our high school students, the English Department tags the help of our very own faculty and staff.  On October 21st, everyone is encouraged to suit up as a book character to help students see the faculty and staff as reading idols.  Teachers and staff are also encouraged to bring along with them their favorite book and find time to talk to the class who the character they are portraying and in what book did they come from.

In another activity with similar objective, the English department ambushed the high school workroom and collated the teachers’ TOP PICKS — a list of their favorite books.
