We discuss the books at length so make sure your child has read and has copies of the books so we don't give away any plot lines or any spoilers. Day 1-- We will begin with discussion questions about books 6-8.5. What is Nightfall? Why is it so dangerous? Who is the most dangerous villain in the novels? Were you mad at Mr. Forkle for being the twin Mr. Forkle? Do you think...

I fell in love with the first Keeper of the Lost Cities book about 2 years ago and then shared the great story with my 4 daughters. Since then we have read all the books in the series multiple times, listened to the series on Audible, and gone to see Shannon Messenger in person and had her sign several of our books! I graduated with a BA in English and Spanish for secondary school teaching. I have always love reading and teaching book studies to students of all ages. I have taught English, Spanish, ESL and religion classes to students ages 7-18 in public school and private settings. I have taught many book studies to ages 8-17 including but not limited to: The Old Man and the Sea, Where the Red Fern Grows, The Red Badge of Courage, The Great Gatsby, The Outsiders, The Scarlet Letter, Tom Sawyer, Letters From Rifka and others. I am currently teaching a Keeper of the Lost Cities book club on Outschool for ages 9-14. Reading is one of my passions and I love sharing that with my children and my students.
Homework in the course will be simple and reiterate what is learned in the class setting. Week 1 each student will have a list of 5 books and what person they are told from. Week 2 we will name our favorite character and what traits we see in that character. Week 3 we will each write our first paragraph for the next book (book 9).
We will be making Ripplefluffs on the last day of class. Each student will need butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, cocoa, flour, salt, baking powder, chocolate chips, box of Andes mints, and chocolate sprinkles (optional). Please be prepared to help your student with the baking. We will be using the microwave, oven and mixer.
There will not be any grades given unless requested.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents will need to be present while we are making Ripplefluffs. We will be using the microwave, mixer and oven.
