Look who’s reading task

Wordle: Untitled

A nice task to get students thinking about the importance of reading and just who is reading, not just ‘boring’ people which is what some students think or are led to believe.

Use the task sheet below to get students to work individually or in pairs/groups to research and find images of people reading, if they’re famous then it has more impact, then ask students to make posters showing whoever they’ve found looking at books/reading. The posters can then be made into a display.

This task can be adapted for any topic such as look who’s writing, drawing, speaking etc. I’ve carried out this task with several classes and they all really enjoyed it, especially seeing their work on the walls.


I'd like to hear from you
