Marketing reading for fun—not just academics—is a relatively new philosophy in Chinese educational facilities. This term, staff associated with RCEF spin-off Starfish Non-urban Youth Cultural Research Centre attended conferences and frequented schools that are building various kinds of programs for reading lessons. The annual conference hosted by the Chen Yet-Sen Household Foundation brought together the majority of the NGOs and also schools piloting reading and also library programs in China and taiwan. It was an excellent chance to discuss experiences and learn much more opportunities for cooperation. Starfish staff and also curriculum teachers also frequented rural school partners associated with the New Education Foundation, a NGO that promotes reading and writing in schools across China and taiwan. The networking helped them to assess their own work in light associated with other innovations happening on the globe. Starfish’s type of combining reading with service learning remains to be unique amongst organizations in China and you will be a very important contribution to the overall promotion associated with childhood reading curriculum in this country.
