ISTANBUL (AA) – Uğur schools continue the Book is Mine project, which has been running for five years.
According to the Uğur schools, students of all levels read a book for 20 minutes every day at the scheduled school time. Pupils from the Uğur schools, which are taught in 112 schools in 52 provinces of Turkey, took reading time outside of school as part of the library week.
Deputy Director General of Education and Training of Ugur Schools Arda Ergez, whose views are included in the statement, said that the importance of reading books “lies within the framework of mother tongue teaching, which is at the forefront of our 5 languages and 2 skills. Based on the philosophy of education, our students should use Turkish correctly, understand and interpret what is read and have a wide vocabulary, knowledge of spelling and the Navy are among our primary goals. The first step in achieving this is to make reading a habit for our students,” used the phrases.
Ergez indicated that the importance they place on reading books supports academic and exam success and made the following assessments:
With our 20-minute free reading lessons every day in all of our schools, in our dedicated reading areas, in our classrooms, and in our libraries, we aim to raise awareness of book reading among our students. All our staff in our schools are involved in this activity at the same time. We want our students and all our employees to discover new worlds with our project. As part of Libraries Week, all of our students managed to raise awareness in society by reading books in open spaces. As educators whose goal is to instill awareness of reading from an early age, we are proud of all of our students.”
