Three tasks (you may need 1h at least to fulfill this part on Reading):
Read about the four different reading techniques here.
Q: Which technique do you use more frequently? To do what? Which one gives you more pleasure?
1- Do you know there are 10 Rights of the Reader by the French writer Daniel Pennac?
Can you guess (or remember for those who have already come across them before) in what consist these 10 rights?
Write your own list of 10 rights before reading Pennac's list. Yes, now, open a blank page and type your 10 rights of the reader.
2- Then get to know Pennac's list of Rights here in a great poster (that you may want to use in your house and/ or classes) and compare your list with Pennac's. Share your list with us and your thoughts about this taks.
3- Then read Erin's review here about this topic. She wrote a review on a book about them by Quentin Blake. Read her review on the rights themselves here. What are your thoughts on these two reviews? Do you agree with her? What did you think about her blog?
Finally, a challenge:
Go to and complete the Speed Reading Test (you may want to ignore the advertisement).
Share your experience.
How did you feel completing it?
What's your personal opinion about this kind of exercises?
I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts!
