Books, for the mind

Module 2

It’s good to read

Activity 1

To prove enjoyment of reading a variety [lo 3.1.1]

LITERATURE MEMORIES

The brain is an amazing organ. No computer designed by man can beat it. You have so many memories stored within your brain. What you need to do for this exercise is call back some of your literature memories. All those stories you have ever heard or read need to be recalled. See how good your memory is by listing books, characters or authors you know.

Activity 2

To describe how you feel about a book and give reasons for it [lo 3.3]

READING AND VIEWING

Let’s see if you can use your powers of observation and put your opinion on the line.

In order to do this you will need to collect some book reviews (movie reviews will also help) from magazines and newspapers. Discuss within your group what a book review is and how you would go about making one of your favourite book. Decide what method you plan to use to evaluate your book - what scale (1 to 4?) and what symbol (**?)

Now that you have all the necessary information at your fingertips, JUST DO IT.

What you need to do

  • Choose your book
  • Tantalise your reader with snippets of the storyline without giving too much away.
  • Rate the book using your chosen scale and symbols. Your teacher will supply you with special paper for this task.
  • Exchange your book and book review with your group members.
  • After reading the new book, rate it according to YOUR OPINION .
