Empower your students to work together with Book Clubs! The students become the directors, task managers, materials managers, recorders, and reporters of the class. Everyone has a job! The students are in charge of their learning. Not only does it sound awesome to parents when their child comes home and brags they are doing book clubs, the teacher literally oversees the work and just serves as the facilitator. Book clubs free up the teachers time to observe the students interactions and learning. An added bonus? The kids LOVE it!
