Staff Christmas Challenge

During the last week before the Christmas Holidays I set all Tutors a reading challenge.

 

Could they read a young adult book from the MRC over the Christmas Holidays which they could then talk to their tutor group about. (They didn’t have to like the book but they would need to be able to tell them what they didn’t like and why!)

 

They had three choices…

 

1. Tell me what genre you like to read and I’ll find something similar.

2. I can try and link the book in with your subject.

3. Opt for pot luck and I’ll issue you with something random.

 

I created a Reading Challenge bookmark for each option and as responses came in I wrote their name on these before heading to the shelves to pick a book. This was the most enjoyable part – picking the right book (hopefully) for each tutor. The next best thing was feeling like Father Christmas when I delivered books to pigeon holes around the Academy. The present a good book to read!

 

 33 tutors took up the challenge and as feedback comes in I’ll be creating a poster for each Tutor/Book containing the book cover and staff photo along with a quote. These can be displayed in the teachers class/tutor room and I’ll promote them on the Academy screens.
