Scholastic Book Club - Discuss Your Favourite Stories - Branches Chapter Books
In this ongoing class, we will discuss a different book every week from the Scholastic Branches Book Series, which are early chapter books that are designed to bridge the gap between leveled readers and traditional chapter books.

Scholastic proudly presents Branches – a unique line of books specifically designed for newly independent readers who are ready to make the exciting leap from leveled readers, but not quite prepared for a traditional chapter book. Your learner will need to have read - or have had read to them - the book that we are discussing in class, before class, in order to actively participate in the class discussion. If they would like to attend this class to find out about the books before they read...
Learners will improve their reading comprehension by engaging in a student-led discussion about the books, and by answering teacher-led questions that will assist them to think more critically about the books.
I am a native English speaker with a 150-hour TESOL qualification from Arizona State University and post-graduate qualifications in Applied Linguistics from Monash University. I am also a lawyer in Australia and I homeschool my own children, therefore speaking and teaching clearly have been a part of my life for many years, and now I am also applying these skills to teaching others. Other applicable courses that I have completed that pertain to this class include: - Reason and Persuasion: Thinking Through Three Dialogues By Plato; - Technology and Ethics; - ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students; - The Clinical Psychology of Children and Young People; - Everyday Parenting: The ABCs of Child Rearing; - A Brief History of Humankind.
Read the book that is listed in the schedule before class, or have an adult read it to you if you are still learning how to read. Better yet, read the book with, or to, an adult!
Learners will need to have access to a copy of the book that we are reading for the class for the week.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will screen share Google Slides during this class. Learners do not need to access the internet outside of Outschool for this class.
