I posted earlier about how human synergy helped create a great new program for boys at my school – the VPAA Guys Read Club. I took the boys’ “thoughts about reading” before and after the program and typed them into wordle for a nice graphic comparison:
What the guys thought about reading before Guys Read Club started:
What the guys thought about reading six months later – after Guys Read Club ended:
nice! what a great way to quickly present results from a programme designed to change attitudes.
Great use of Wordle to capture the boys’ attitudes towards reading. I’d love to hear more about this awesome club that turned these guys’ attitudes around!
Hi Informania – you can read a summary of the program at the blog I.N.K. where I did a guest blog http://inkrethink.blogspot.com/2009/06/reading-is-like-basketball-i-love-it.html or find my various posts about the program on the VPAA media blog at http://vpaamedia.edublogs.org/
