Book clubs and Literature Circles can be a great, enjoyable, and meaningful experience for students but a lot of work for teachers! I have enjoyed running many book clubs in my classroom and have found that it really gets students interested in reading and also works on their cooperative as wells independent work skills.
This book club is for the novel "The Maze Runner" by James Dashner. It is an excellent, engaging novel that students can't seem to put down. It is a dystopian future novel of a group of boys trapped, mysteriously, in a maze, searching endlessly for a way to escape.
