My Project

I am requesting high interest young adult books for book clubs! The young adults in my classroom need to read books in book clubs so that they can discuss the big ideas with one another in order to gain a wider and deeper understanding of the book. Putting the same books in the hands of a small group of readers is vital for increasing reading levels among readers and stretching their ability to talk about their thinking that comes from the reading.

The power of small book clubs made up of four to five students each in my classroom has proven to be the most beneficial way to teach reading skills, critical thinking skills, and accountable discussion skills.

Research also shows that the amount of reading required in college is between 800 and 1000 pages, so establishing a reading habit with peers is one important benefit from the book clubs that makes that particular college expectation not so hard to reach.

In conclusion, my students need multiple copies of recently published young adult literature to read in book club settings. The book clubs serve as a foundation for learning reading skills, practicing discussion techniques and applying the literacy common core standards for mastery.
