Buddy Reading Programme 2014-2015
The Buddy Reading Programme has been running successfully at our Secondary English Corner every Monday during lunch.
Aims and objectives of the reading programme are –
to learn correct pronunciation
to expand vocabulary
to read with expression
to engage in conversation
to develop critical thinking skills
to acquire positive attitudes towards reading
and most importantly – to build confidence
The tutors of this programme are students from P6 to S5 who are committed and passionate about their role as tutors, and who have very kindly given up their lunch time to make this programme meaningful.
Buddy Reading has been found to benefit tutors as well, as
tutors can learn valuable social skills
tutors have been found to demonstrate leadership and co-operation
tutors gain self confidence, academic growth, and a desire to read
