Missing Book Titles

By Barbara Plumb

Check out this fun interactive display from Barbara at  Trinity Catholic College, Lismore, Australia.
Here are her comments:
'I called the display "Missing Book Titles" and it has generated quite a deal of interest from students and staff.
After printing A3 sized colour posters of well known book covers I removed a word from the title and replaced it with a strip of velcro. I then printed out the missing words along with a selection of different words to keep the students guessing and attached a strip of velcro to the back of the words.
Some students like to see how fast they can arrange the titles correctly, some like to have a bit of fun and mix the titles up – "Breaking Dawn" and "Gone with the Wind" for instance, dawn and wind being the missing words!'
It has been a very successful interactive display, encouraging students to engage with each other, teachers and library staff'.
