Description

Class Experience

Book clubs in middle school are a great way to teach students to form and share opinions with others which are 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. 
Students need to come to class having read the book so they can participate in a lively discussion.
