Book Clubs are an awesome way to give students choice in what they read and to differentiate reading levels/interest. This Book Club Unit is focused on "Overcoming Adversity." I chose this theme because my classes read the WWII memoir Night and I use this Unit immediately following that book! Please note that this Unit takes place while other lessons are going on in your classroom! This is not an "every day" unit!
This Unit includes: Unit Overview/Instructions/Rationale, General Rules and Suggestions, Book Club Reading Suggestions based on this theme, Book Club Introduction for Students, Book Club Pre-Reading Sheet/Reading Schedule to be filled out by students, Book Club Meeting Day Sheet Checklist to project on the board, (3) Book Club Guide Sheets for 3 different meetings (each guide sheet is slightly different), Book Club Rating Sheet for student ratings, Book Club Rating Sheet for teacher use, as well as a culminating project, a One Pager Assignment with a rubric!
Please Note: This is for a SPECIFIC THEMATIC Book Club. In my store, I have another Book Club Unit that works for any theme or a non specific book club! I also have another Unit for "The Hero's Journey" However, there are only a few differences between this unit and The Hero's Journey one; therefore, if you are interested in both, purchase the BUNDLE instead! I wouldn't recommend buying both! Thank you so much!
