Book Week February 19-23, 2018
Each year, Dian Harapan Lippo Village spends a week celebrating books and authors. This year, we celebrate the theme which is one of the elements of Fiction. Celebrating theme gives us much broader selection in reading. The chosen theme is Finding Courage. Literature and history are full of tales of people finding courage. Courage has many parts. It includes bravery, perseverance, integrity, and passion. To have courage can mean much more than just a single act of heroism. Learning about courage in others can inspire someone to be courageous.
There several activities we did for this special for this occasion.
1. General SSR (Sustained Silent Reading)
Within the Book Week, all SDH community were having SSR at 09.50-10.05. We were encouraged to read any favorite book (fiction or non-fiction). Everybody took part and seemed to enjoy the book.
2. Literature Circle
This activity was done in English class. We read two short stories and every student got different roles every time to get deeper understanding of each story.
3. Book Switch
Also within the Book Week, the students were encouraged to renew their personal collection by switching their books with others.
