‘Face a Book Challenge’ 2014-’15, the reading and information literacy project, concluded.

“Face a Book (FaB) Challenge” is a reading and information literacy (IL) programme to promote reading habit and develop information literacy skills among students during summer holidays, followed by continuous and yearlong activities and comprehensive evaluation.

FaB Challenge is conceived by the Library of Kendriya Vidyala Pattom, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The project was launched in April 2014 and concluded in February 2015. Fifty students from class VI to XII and four teachers were participated in the project and successfully completed all four activities assigned to them.

In the first stage, all participants were given with an option to select their own FaB book from the library. They red the book during the summer holidays and engaged in the assigned activities. The activities include (i) publishing a review of the selected book on the project blog (participants are provided with log in facility to access the blog themselves where they can post contents like reviews, comments, critical analysis, notes, studies and recommendations, etc) (ii) preparation of a scrap book (titled as “My Little Book on_______”, with a review of the selected book, author profile, bibliography, character sketches, new words/phrases, drawings, paintings, quizzes, quotations, images, comments, references, etc.), (iii) shooting and uploading of a one minute video (Booktalk) on the book, and (iv) presenting a programme (skit, play, reviews, etc) based on the book in the school assembly. The participants were known as “FaB Challengers”. Anyone could challenge an FaB Challenger on the selected book.

Evaluation was carried out in each and every stage and eight students were selected as the best performers. Certificates, badges and prizes were presented to the winners and other participants.
