Whether you are a teacher, parent, bookseller, librarian or journalist, LAGOS BOOKS CLUB (LBC) and EDUPEDIA ASSOCIATES (EDUPEDIA) are the place to visit and partner with.We have tons of educational downloads and resources available for YOU.
This is our website and we think it’s nice, but this isn’t our only home on the web,oh no! In fact you can find us on Twitter, too! And Facebook! And on YouTube and My Space! And you should, because we’d like to tweet with you, and book your presence and share all sorts of exciting things!
Websites are great, aren’t they? Especially websites about things like schools,students studies and reading. And celebrations of life through politics,religion,sports and entertainment.Unfortunately human lives do have its sad moments through crimes and people behaving rather badly.but whether good or bad there is the need to gather and disseminate all these varied experiences of our human existence.Our focus shall be EDUCATION and INFOTAINMENT!
In addition to these websites we shall also be holding educational,literary and reading events.Regular events are great ways for promoting books and education and needn’t take long to organize.We shall be using newsletters,text messages and e-mails to invite schools and people to such events and related activities.
Do you have a personal library at home,a school library or a public library in your LGA?. If you don’t why can’t we work together to have one set up for you? We can also help you put a committed personnel in charge if you don’t have the expertise in-house.
Schools should also set up Book Clubs and get every child and teacher involved.We can help source for relevant reading materials in some cases.These could be hardware or software.We can help you identify literacy goals of each Book Club and make sure that their activities are monitored in line with stated aims.
Try to find a local library or book club like ours to visit regularly no matter how busy you seem to be.A place with books or the contents of a book can be panacea to pressure we are bombarded with on daily basis.
If you are a teacher encourage students to search for abandoned books at home or buy a few say 5 each from the “bend down” (second-hand) markets.Encourage them to share or swap.If you let us know what you have done we shall be willing to send you a few more tips to maximize available advantages for your students.We might also be willing to lend you a few more books to strengthen your basic setup.
As a teacher you should also consider a Book Club Board in the school for the reason stated in one of our earlier write-ups which states thus:
…”In addition, there is no emphasis on the oral aspect of the language or a simple corner or board created for pasting English-related articles to whip up the interest of students in the subject. Many schools do not have English indoctrinating materials to build up orientation or a culture of good English. What exists in most schools is the over flogging of schemes of work and past examination papers. There is nothing to aid students in the practical application of the subject from the perspective of being a contributory factor for the much talked about “Allround education”…
Teachers should get students to write or get interesting articles to be pasted for other students or for production of a school magazine or newsletter.
LBC and EDUPEDIA shall also be involved in THEMED ACTIVITIES,and BRAINY EDUCATIONAL GAMES which we mastered over the years while managing 3 private schools from Basic School to a 6th Form College. Teachers can also engage in themed activities in their schools by inviting students to bring hardware or software materials related to the theme.Education should make students have a mix of schooling and some fun.Isn’t it?
To you students,make sure you have some condensed reading material with you anywhere you go.So that even when you are in a molue or waiting for something to be set up you can put to good use some of the reading,studying or examination techniques available on all our websites. These are:
