(2)    Tutor

A tutor will be assigned to each student to provide guidance and monitor his/her reading progress throughout the term.  The Reading Promotion Committee will try its best to ensure that the discipline which the tutor specializes in closely matches the domain chosen by the student.  It is expected that each tutor will take care of 4 to 5 students. He is also expected to help the students prepare for the reading sharing session at the end of the term.

 

(3)    Number of Reading

Regarding the number of books read in the school year, the reference range lies between 12 and 30 books.

 

It must be stressed that the student may read books belonging to other domains during the term though he is expected to read mainly books pertaining to the domain he has chosen for the particular term.  It may be desirable for the tutor to encourage the students under his care to stick to the chosen domains and ensure that they complete not less than 3 books of reading in the respective domains and read at least one English book and 1 Chinese book in each term.

 

(4)    Reading Record

The student is expected to meet the tutor frequently to keep him informed of his/her progress and discuss with the tutor all matters concerning reading books which are, preferably, chosen from a recommended list prepared by the Reading Promotion Committee.  A log book is kept by the student to help the tutor informed of his progress.  The suggested frequency is 3 times per book.  Student should complete at least 2 knowledge maps as reading assignments in each term.  For student who chooses to write short essay, minimum number of words is 150.  Student should prepare a 10 min presentation in the Book Sharing Group Session.  Meeting dates and tutor¡¦s advice should be recorded in the log book.
