Using social media to encourage students to read

As well as posting student book reviews on the Library blog , we are now encouraging students to write Twitter reviews, which, when handed in to the Library, will be tweeted @RavensbourneSch and to the relevant authors who have Twitter accounts.

To create a Twitter book review for our Twitter site you simply have to write your review, including the author and title and your name, using only 140 characters. Don't forget that spaces count as characters.

Either fill out a grid (ask a Librarian for one) and hand it in to a Librarian or create your tweet in Word and email it to the Library.

Students whose book reviews are blogged or tweeted will receive a reward point.  We will let you know via your Form Tutor that review has been tweeted and that you have received a reward point.  A note will be sent, which will include a link to the twitter account. We will let you English teacher know too.

Get reading and reviewing!
