This book club will incorporate various activities that the students in grades 5th through 8th can do at home or on the computer. We will be using Literature Circles for our discussion and group work time as well as an end of book project, for closure. There will be weekly meetings that last for 90 minutes where we will be discussing the assigned reading, going over new jobs and learning to work with each other in a virtual environment. Each student will be assigned a Literature Circle job to do at home during the week and then share the next week with the class. Jobs are: Discussion Leader, Real Life Connector, Word Wizard, Imaginative Illustrator, Star Summarizer, Character Catcher. It will be expected that the students will come prepared with having completed the assigned reading and ready to share their job and participate in the discussions and group work.
