Ako unplugged (only books allowed)

reading-a-book

A novel(pun intended) approach to Ako  (upgraded version of Form time) is have students spend 4o minutes reading a book quietly. This is harder than you think for students used to constant distractions. And book means book – the analogue version where you have to actually touch paper. After the first 2-3 weeks students adopted the discipline, but it did require teacher diligence. Hopefully their reading skills, concentration and imagination have improved as a consequence.
