Reading Project in Zhengan county, Guizhou and Huoqiu county, Anhui, implemented by 6He Reading Service Center for Children, Shangcheng District, Hangzhou(6He), is a public welfare project that aims to set up a reading corner in the classroom, and push for stakeholders like school teachers,principals and local education bureaus to participate in the reading promotion campaign. 6He tries very hard to create a multi-faceted and open-shelf reading environment for students, and thus enhance students’ abilities in terms of language expression and logic thinking.
6He is an organization that is dedicated to promoting reading in certain regions. Since 2002, it has started to promote reading in Zheng’an county, Zunyi City. Now many project schools’ teachers and students have formed reading awareness and intention, and reading atmosphere across the county have taken shape. 6He’s work is divided into three steps. The first step is in which project team members reside in project schools and provide training. Gradually, the principals, teachers and students gain their self-guided reading awareness, and school libraries open and are in full operation, books are fully opened to students. The next step is in which, project schools, after crossing over the first step, open their libraries without the project team’s help, and independently carry out their own reading courses and activities, while in the meantime, the project team trains seed teachers to independently design their own reading courses. The third step is that project schools, drawing on the experience from the first and second step, provide guidance and advice for other step one project schools in the same areas, thus increasing the project’s popularity and impact.
6He is trying to figure out the suitable way of local teachers training and teachers’ coaches training. Macao Tong Chai Charity Association made grants for teacher training and activities to enhance rural teachers’ abilities to guide students’ reading.
