READING CLUBS

It is a matter of grave concern that the “visual” generation of today has strayed away from ‘the culture of reading’ – a skill recognized as the mother of all skills. Even when they happen to read, they seem to be mostly flipping through non-serious texts.
It is essential to equip our youth with the 21st Century Skills. The youth need to achieve a reasonable degree of competence in creative thinking, critical thinking, design thinking, emotional and social intelligences, and other related cognitive skills, which can effectively be developed through reading. If the reading habit is not developed during their school/college days, the possibility of cultivating it ever in one’s lifetime is very remote.

Objectives of the Reading Club :

  • To create a love for reading in students and enable them to become better, lifelong readers;
  • To enable them to reflect on what they read in order to lead them to become effective writers and speakers;
  • To familiarize them with different text types (genres) and enable them to engage in appropriate reading strategies; and
  • To employ synchronous (both virtual and physical meetings) as well as asynchronous modes – Web tools, such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Blogs, Reading Logs, MOOCs (audios, videos, quotes, blurbs, reviews, etc.) to sustain their interest.

ELTAI would like to have MoUs with institutions that are willing to implement this initiative and help to achieve these objectives collaboratively. Long-term (10 years) institutional members of ELTAI interested in this project may please contact us at: indiaeltai@gmail.com  with their membership details.
