Covered Activities in 2015/2016

Backegårdsskolan joined the project understanding the importance of reading for the the whole school community: students, parents, teachers and the administration. The focus was put on the students‘ reading not paying attention to what books (language, style, topic, etc) they read. The aim is to raise their reading motivation, develop their native and foreign (English) language, get introduced with some words in Swedish, Latvian, and Icelandic. Teachers are also interested in the project as a tool for exchanging teaching/learning experience, finding out new methods and ways to develop reading skills of the students, especially in inclusive teaching. The school administration seeing students‘ interest in reading also supports and encourages them.
