With reading and writing at the heart of learning and communication Adult Education is celebrating this national awareness day and is encouraging everyone to read more.
Reading can take you on an amazing journey, it can fill your mind with a wealth of information, expand your knowledge and help develop and open your mind to new possibilities.
What was your favourite story as a child?
What’s your favourite book and what is it about that book you love?
What book would you love to read when you have the time?
Do you read books with your children?
These are some of the questions that students in the English department are talking about in their online forums and English lessons to mark World Book Day on 4th March. They’ve been sharing stories from the UK and around the world, and finding that other students sometimes cherish the very same books. Some of the students will also be using their critical thinking skills to write book reviews.
We’re also reading articles about the importance of reading and how, contrary to popular opinion, reading is not going out of fashion. In fact, we’re accessing more reading material than at any other time in history. Reading habits are changing with technological advances, but reading is by no means falling out of favour.
So this week , if you’re home schooling your children, chatting to friends and family, why not also spend a moment reflecting together on the books you have loved or will be packing in your bag to read whenever we can next get away on holiday!
