Our HOUSE…..

12 Jan

PrintHOUSE Magazine is now here! A term of planning and two terms of encouragement, hard work, drafting and refining have produced the first ever SBL House Magazine. Jenny and I are so happy with it – it looks incredible, and paves the way for a bigger, better and even more beautiful issue at the end of Term 4. Thank you to all tutors who stuck with the project – it will be easier now to see what all that hard work can produce. Our students will finally be able to link what they have been doing in Skills to their final product, and the 3 REALS (REAL product, REAL audience, REAL purpose) will be understood far better!

Many of our students lack confidence and self-esteem – more on that in the next blog post – but this will surely go some way towards demonstrating to themselves what they can do. BELIEVE! Copies will be with tutor groups this week.

Thanks to Jon Tooby for putting it together. Awesome job Jon. Not just a pretty face.

And HUGE thanks to Jenny for coordinating it all, and to you awesome tutors for sticking with the project.

(NB a couple of typos in this version which will be corrected for general consumption – prize for spotting the 3 teeny-weeny errors)
