|There are always students ready to lead book club discussions|
We just had our first meeting last week. Six students attended the meeting. I always read with the students and participate in the meetings as a facilitator. Nathan started off the hour long discussion with many questions he had prepared . Some of his questions are listed below:
- What do you think the aliens want?
- What is the 5th wave?
- What do you think the aliens are?
- What do you think the aliens look like?
- What do they want the children for?
I'm always impressed by the discussion during our book clubs. The students often dig deeper into story components. I have yet to have a club meeting that doesn't run long. The students just keep talking about what may happen next and what characters should do.
Following the discussion, we decided to watch the movie trailer to The 5th Wave. I also reminded students how to access our Edmodo library page so the discussion can continue. Our last two book club meetings will be in the middle and end of July.
Consider trying a summer book club during a portion of summer. If it makes a difference in one or two students, it is well worth it!
