Taking a cue from the National Education Policy (NEP), the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched ‘Reading Literacy: Practice Book’ for students of classes 7 to 10.
The practice book has been introduced with an opportunity to engage students with a variety of texts in a self-learning mode. It is expected to help students learn the nuances of the language in an innovative, engaging and functional manner.
Reading Literacy: Practice Book for students for English consists of five units.
As per CBSE, there are an eclectic mix of subjects ranging from food, travel, sports to our glorious heritage. The book presents a wide variety of authentic reading materials such as movie reviews, posters, quotations, cartoons, blogs, Instagram posts and more.
It provides a rich reading experience to the students. These themes have been carefully curated keeping in mind the interests of the learner and the larger educational goals.
In its latest circular, the CBSE said various sections have been interconnected through interesting dialogues between two characters that guide the learners. As a result, it makes the book easy to navigate. Similarly, the recommendations of the two mascots help develop in students a larger interest in reading and experiencing different kinds of texts. The students are introduced to a fascinating range of sub genres.
“The resource material is an attempt to help learners explore the wealth of language in a self-directed and systematic manner. The question types provide them with ample opportunity to think, evaluate, consider and express,” the circular added.
The students can access the practice book on the CBSE Academic website at the link http://cbseacademic.nic.in/web_material/Manuals/reading_literacy.pdf and also on the DIKSHA portal.
