Club Experience

Book Nook is an app that we use at Galileo to facilitate a reading session with our students.

They get the opportunity to log in with their own details and username and our facilitator helps them to read away. Book Nook is designed for students to engage in short books while answering multiple choice questions and playing matching games.

Students who struggle with reading can benefit from this in an immense way and for those looking to work on their comprehension skills, Book Nook helps with that too.

Schedule

Learning Goals

About the Club Teacher

Heidi van Heerden is a language practitioner. She graduated in 2017 and decided to study education too. Heidi’s student years led her to tutoring jobs, freelance writing and editing opportunities. This fueled her passion for different languages and the ability to share this passion with like minded people. The obvious next step was to get involved in teaching and therefore joining the Galileo team.

In the English Literacy Club, Heidi facilitates the reading sessions and encourages students to engage in spirited conversations about topics discussed in the book.
