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 am also aware 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. 
Learners must have access to all books and come to class each week prepared to discuss the week's selection. Links are affiliate.

45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
These books sometimes deal with big issues but all of the books are middle grade and age-appropriate. There are warnings for romance, war, death, violence, racism, historical events, and sexism. 

If students want to discuss any big issues in the book club, I will listen to what they are feeling and respond in an appropriate way but will also redirect to the questions I have planned for the students. As every family is different, please review all books before signing up your student. Amazon, GoodReads, Common Sense Media, and Kirkus are all good resources for this.
