In this ongoing book club, learners will read classic, popular fantasy books. Students will read and come together to discuss several chapters every week - finding adventure and new friends along the way!

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will develop and improve their reading comprehension and literary analysis skills by reading novels in a genre they find fun and engaging.
Students will learn how to express their enjoyment, understanding, and opinions about a story to others in a guided, constructive, and respectful manner.
Students will gain a deeper understanding of fantasy as a genre, its tropes, archetypes, and some of its most famous stories, worlds, and characters.
Homework Offered
Students will read independently every week as a part of this book club. In books that are easier to read, typically 6-8 chapters will be assigned every week, meaning students can follow along with a steady ~1 chapter per day. More challenging books (or just books that happen to have long chapters), we will read at approximately half that pace, 3-4 chapters per week, half a chapter each day.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
You do not need to buy any books until we decide as a class which one will will be reading next!
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Dragon Rider, and The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
Fantasy books tend to involve adventure, danger, magic, and scary situations for the characters to encounter and overcome. Many of the books that I have selected for this class are typically categorized as middle grade, meaning they are generally considered appropriate for students of the upper elementary and middle school age range. Fighting and some frightening situations are present in these books, and on occasion contain mild language and mild romantic relationships. Even so, in all the stories selected evil is overcome, leaving them ultimately hopeful and positive.
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (The Silmarillion is on the book list for the older class for more advanced Tolkien fans)
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Dragon Rider, and The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
