Flying Off the Shelves! Book Clubs in Secondary

How can I create lifelong readers, inspire writers, and develop student agency in my RLA classroom? Allow us to suggest book clubs! According to the Teachers College at Columbia University, book clubs:

  • Promote a love for literature and a positive attitude towards reading;
  • Reflect a student-centered model of literacy
  • Encourage extensive and intensive reading;
  • Invite natural discussions that lead to student inquiry and critical thinking;
  • Support diverse responses to text;
  • Foster interaction, cooperation, and collaboration;
  • Provide choice and encourage responsibility;
  • Expose students to literature from multiple perspectives;
  • Nurture reflection and self-evaluation

(2021, Center for Professional Education of Teachers; Columbia University)

Whether you are new to book clubs, or if you’re a pro at literature circles, join us for a day of collaboration and learning. We will collaborate face to face for 4 hours and then plan flexibly for 2 hours.
