Utilizing research-based best practices for small-group reading, the Collaborative Classroom Book Clubs program provides foundational lessons for setting up independent, student-led book clubs as well as a variety of mini-lessons that can be used to support and deepen book discussions.
Constructed as a collection of lessons centered around exciting texts, the foundational lessons and structures are what every teacher needs to run successful and vibrant book clubs with little prep time, and robust results.
With an innovative structure, six teacher-led foundation-setting lessons (approximately 25-30 minutes) focus on the social interactions and independent thinking students need to lead their own thoughtful book discussions. Students read and journal between book club meetings and gradually take on responsibility for the success of the club. After the foundation-setting lessons, the teacher meets with the group for mini-lessons as needed, allowing for meeting with other groups or conducting one-on-one conferences.
