Class experience

US Grade 3 - 5
Advanced Level
Each meeting will be tailored to the needs of gifted and advanced readers. We will start each meeting by discussing the section of the book that everyone has read for the session. Then we will discuss the book and reading through the lens of depth and complexity and scholarly attributes.  (Being prepared, curiosity, taking academic risks, multiple perspectives, academic excellence, using multiple resources, vision, and goal setting)

Most importantly, our book club is a safe space for gifted and advanced readers to share their thoughts and feelings about reading.  I understand how difficult it can be for gifted and advanced readers to find their place in the world, and I'm  here to help them navigate their way to success.

Homework Offered
Each week, students will need to read a portion of the book on their own. And they will be asked to so some writing and reflecting about it. I will be giving them templates and guidance for this work.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Assessment will be informal as I hear them read and discuss their thoughts about the reading. But I am also available to help assess your student's reading level if you would like.
Grades Offered
I will have a digital copy of each book for each class, but students will need to obtain their own copy of the book to read in between classes.  A digital version is acceptable, and they may also listen to the book in an audible format while they follow along.

Matilda by Roald Dahl
