My Project

This project is designed to augment our social issues and narrative nonfiction book club libraries.

You can help our 6th graders expand their listening and speaking skills as they discuss social issues and critically think their way through narrative nonfiction.

We will be engaged in two five week units where students will learn how to prepare, meet discuss theories and evidence in their book club books. Students will learn debate skills, listening and speaking techniques, how to critique characters, track their thinking and write about their reading in preparation for discussion.

Grades 6-8
