Come join us over the course of 8 weeks for a fun and engaging book club for tweens 9 - 12 who love to read, analyze, and discuss books with their peers.

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 in whatever way they feel comfortable doing that.
I am passionate about books and have been running book clubs for homeschoolers for over ten years. I believe that book clubs are a great way to prepare for high school level analysis and also teach students how to articulate their thoughts about what they have read. And I love graphic novels and hopefully, by the end of this course, your student will too!

Please look up the books prior to enrolling your student to make sure the choices will be a good match for your student and your family. Some of our books deal with big issues such as death of a parent, mental health crises, racism, and bullying. All books are firmly middle grade reads and deal with everything in an appropriate way.
