Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Book clubs are a great way to teach students to form and share opinions with others which are an important skill to have as they get older. I run all book clubs so every student is able to answer questions that I pose and participate in the discussion. My goal for the students is to get them to share their thoughts however they feel comfortable doing that. 
I  am an experienced educator who has been leading book clubs for over ten years. Due to my experience with teens and book clubs, I am able to discuss any sensitive topics in an age-appropriate way. I have a love of literature that I share with my students. I am also experienced with students of all abilities and am patient and respectful toward everyone. I love nurturing a love of learning and reading in my students and feel that my enthusiasm rubs off onto my students, which is a joy to see. 
Homework Offered
Students will need to read each book so they can actively participate in the discussions.
