Reading Room Program
The aim of Reading Room is to create a Reading Culture at St. Joseph’s College, Echuca, to support the aims of the English Curriculum, and support students in achieving the documented benefits of enjoying regular reading.
Reading Room exposes students through talk, discussion and multimedia resources to a range of reading genre, styles and formats. It enables the students to set goals for their reading and to record and evaluate their achievements.
In conjunction with classroom study, it exposes students to the ‘power of language’, encourages them to make connections between texts and to experience a variety of reading possibilities.
The hope of Reading Room is to make even our most reluctant readers experience the overwhelming benefits of reading and to find joy in the practice.
