For eight weeks, we will read a variety of highly acclaimed books across genres. I have chosen these books to get students excited and engaged with the writing, making them want to share their thoughts with others. The books are all young adult/adult level so please review the books before enrolling your learner if you have concerns about content. Prior to the first meeting, please have your student read the classic novel Lord of the Flies. This class is for the student who devours books,...
Book clubs are a great way to teach students to form and share opinions with others, which are important skills to have as they get older. I run all book clubs so every student can answer questions that I pose and participate in the lively discussion. I am also aware that some students prefer to participate through chat than on a microphone which is entirely acceptable and something I support. My goal for the students is to get them to share their thoughts in whatever way they feel comfortable doing that.
I am an experienced homeschooler who has been leading book clubs for over ten years. 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 towards everyone.
Students must read the books prior to each meeting.
