New eTwinning project-A.B.C.: Active Book Club

Posted on Updated on


At this project we are going to create a transnational Book Club and vote for a book in English language, which all the participants will work on. We expect to read the book, create a card game based on the content of the book, exchange the card games between schools that participate on the project, have an online contest – game on the themes that the book presents, have creative writing based on some topics of the book, like the characters and their life, the historical period and its affect on the heroes life and the finale of the book. The upper purpose is to like the book and finally live the magic of what we read, what we understood, what we felt and what we wished to be happened if things were different. Book club is an excellent way of encouraging pupils to read widely and frequently, inside and outside school, and of improving reading and spoken language skills.
