Have your teen  join us in a SUMMER READING BOOK CLUB!

Meetings are held WEEKLY.

During the 90-minute book club, students will discuss literary elements of the book, theme, pondering questions, the ending, excitement, disappointment and more!

Following class, there will be an OPTIONAL, SHORT follow up assignment of the student’s choice to show that they UNDERSTOOD the novel.  The student will pick from a written or creative  (Mind Map) based response.  Together, the parent and student decide if they will take part in this activity (not required – an option).  Students have two weeks to submit this for an evaluation.   During class, the FOLLOW UP ASSIGNMENT will be presented as “homework”; however, ultimately the parents have the choice.

Students MUST pre-read (or pre-listen on audio) the book to participate.

Additionally, parents do have the opportunity to sign up for INDIVIDUAL BOOK CLUB MEETINGS (instead of all eight meetings).   Although more work for us, we are doing this to allow for the GREATEST flexibility in this offering.   NOTE: If you register for individual book clubs, your student will NOT be added to our LMS, CANVAS, and instead receive the link for class via email.
