Supercharge your Book Week with Ideas, Activities and Themes to Get Kids Reading
with Rowena Beresford, Managing Editor, The Book Curator


Supercharge your Book Week preparations with this informative webinar from the Founder and Managing Editor of The Book Curator.


Rowena will share her thoughts on the CBCA shortlists, including her top picks, and explore different ways you can use those books to encourage students to think about, discuss, enjoy and interact with our great Australian literature, during Book Week and beyond.


We’ll also explore the Book Week theme—Reading is My Secret Power—and tips on inspiring students to understand the power reading gives them to explore the world and create their future.


Participants will gain new ideas for celebrating Book Week, with a variety of classroom and library activities, library display ideas, apps and websites.


Rowena Beresford is the Founder of The Book Curator, a membership service that supports school librarians and their teams, and the Managing Editor of The Book Curator Magazine, which includes reviews of a wide range of fantastic fiction from Australia and overseas, and helps equip librarians to better match those books to readers. Their special annual publication Book Week Ideas & Activities provides ready-to-use ideas and resources to connect primary school students with the CBCA shortlist titles.


This webinar addresses the following Australian Professional Standards for Teachers:
