Class Experience

Book clubs in middle school are a great way to teach students to form and share opinions with others which is 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 lively discussion. I also know that some students prefer to participate through chat than on a microphone. This is completely acceptable. My goal for the students is to get them to share their thoughts however they feel comfortable doing that. 
Students need to come to class having read the book so they can participate in a lively discussion. 
Week 1 - Soul Lanterns Week 2 - Yusuf Azeem Is Not a Hero Week 3 - Red Stars Week 4 - The Door of No Return Week 5 - Lines of Courage Week 6 - Freedom Swimmer Week 7 - The Bluest Sky Week 8 - World Made of Glass
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Historical fiction books deal with big issues including war, mistreatment of children, and other social issues. These books tackle all of these issues and more. There is war, racism, torture, abuse, terrorism, the AIDS epidemic, and more. Please pre-read if you have concerns. 
Books need to be purchased or borrowed from a library.
