The 2018 Carnegie Shadowing Group Magazine

Carnegie Medal is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for children. Each year thousands of reading groups in schools and libraries in the UK and overseas get involved in the Awards, with young people ‘shadowing’ the judging process. They read, discuss and review the books on the shortlists and get involved in reading related activity in groups and online. Shadowing groups are encouraged to publish their own creative response to the books, including reviews, blogs videos and the enclosed magazine. This is the fourth year that Taylor High School has taken part in the Carnegie Shadowing Scheme and the Groups love compiling their funky magazines, hopefully you will agree once you read the 2018 copy attached below.
