There isn’t any offensive content but perhaps some cultural sensitivities should be borne in mind and the entire concept may be inappropriate for some non-European cultures.
Also, some of the information is local to where I live so perhaps you should consider changing that too. The activity worked well for the vast majority of my classes.
One of the most powerful things I can do for my students is work to promote reading for fun and helping students find books that they will enjoy.
By the final round, about half of the students will typically have a book that they want to check out.
I especially like that I can customize the boxes for the classes/grades that I have visiting.
And I LOVE that lots of book replenishing is needed after each class! What other tried and true activities do you use for the love of reading?
So I try to do as much as possible to talk to my students about what they’re reading and help them find books that will get them hooked!
One activity that I’ve found to be extremely successful this year is a round of “Book Speed Dating.” I know that this is an activity that many librarians have done for years…it’s tried and true for a reason!
