This product is designed to be used in an English classroom that is participating in a book club unit.
Offer a variety of "book clubs" for students to join. Students choose their top three books and you place them in groups for the unit.
Students read the book with their group and participate in a number of organized activites.
This is a complete book club unit. This bundle includes the following:
Book Club Overview - a step-by-step guide for you and your students that explains each aspect of books clubs, how it is set up, and what the expectations are.
(A list of books that my class uses for book clubs is included. Our theme is "another perspective," so each book fits into that theme. You are welcome to delete this section of the overview if you are reading different books.)
Book Club Sign-up Sheet - a document for your students to choose their top 3 book choices
Book Club Reading Schedule - a graphic organizer for groups to set their own reading pace and for you to outline due dates. This is an excellent resource to keep your students organized and allow them to work independently and at their own pace.
Book Club Meetings Doc - an overview of what is included at weekly book club meetings and what the expectations for the online discussion board are. Students will meet with their group to discuss the book weekly and will also participate in an online discussion - each with their own requirements.
Book Club Meeting Powerpoint - A set of prompting questions for each book club meeting.
Individual Response Questions - an overview of the individual response/writing component. This includes a list of 16 questions for students to choose from and respond to weekly.
