COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Literary Book Club is designed to be an immersive and fun way for students in grades 6-9 to read works of literature that they enjoy.  They will choose their books from a pre-selected list before the school year begins and they will read a new book every five to six weeks.  Club activities will included worksheets, culinary treats, interdisciplinary projects (such as art, science, etc.), mapping, reports, and other creative tools to help them to fully experience their literature as they learn.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Through this club, students will:

  • expand their vocabulary
  • experience richness of meaning in their reading
  • learn to analyze selected works in regard to tone, structure, content, figurative language, theme, point of view, and style
  • consider how the historical, social, and geographic context reflects and affects a work's meaning
  • hopefully find enjoyment in reading
