IC R.E.A.D.

Take part in IC R.E.A.D.!

As part of book month, we kindly invite our community to share with their reading preferences by making a short video on a book they like. The goal is to promote reading and highlight the importance of this habit in all its different forms.

Please find in the following link further information on how to participate in this activity:

Who can participate?

IC students, families and staff.

How to participate:

Please send a short video with your book review to biblioteca@ic.edu.uy.
We will be sharing some of these videos on our website and then on social media.

Length of the video: 3 mins max.

Language: English or Spanish.

Deadline: Submissions will be accepted until Wednesday 26 May.

How to submit the review:

The review can be presented through the means of a short video in which the participant reviews the book, like a ‘booktuber’ does. If the presenter does not want to appear on screen they can record themselves speaking and accompany their audio with images. Another option is for the participant to base his/her review on certain favourite elements of the book or even take on the role of the main character to narrate the events of the book.

How to make a review:

A review involves extracting the substance of a book to share the most important aspects of the narrative and complementing this with the narrator's own impressions and comments. 

In the first place, the reviewer should mention some of the book’s main information, such as author, title, publisher, year of publication and literary genre.

Then, an overview of the book, including its structure (if it is divided into chapters, for example), and a brief summary of the plot (without spoiling the end) should be provided.

The conclusion should include personal comments and why the reviewer recommends the book.
