HELP! The 2021 Reading River


Students, colleagues, readers, lend me your ears ...


If there's anything I like as much as reading or teaching literature, it's designing and producing resources, but I also like (and need) to 'destruct-test' them before they're 'released into the wild' ...


That's where YOU come in.

When I began my teacher training, one of the things we discussed, and were encouraged to do, was to keep a 'reading river', which I have done in various ways since. The main record is a couple of simple spreadsheets.


But as I've said in recent posts, I feel more driven to champion reading in 2021, and to make it easier to give recommendations - whilst at the same time mindful that the teaching life is a busy one, and I probably won't always have the time to produce the type of review I wrote for The State Counsellor. I also want something I can:


- print and display in my classroom;

- email out in response to the requests I get;

- set up as for a 'currently reading' sticky post; and

- post on Instagram


So here's the prototype, based on what I'm currently reading. Please let me know what you think! Specifically, how do the following work for you?


- dark background and colour scheme;

- the type of information provided (is anything missing?); and

- how easily understandable the icons and badges are


Thank you!


As I've got into the habit of doing recently, here's a PDF version, should you want one.
