Demco® Upstart® Book Club eBook
There’s nothing like a book club to instill a love of reading and generate excitement about books. Book clubs can also inspire creativity, foster camaraderie among students and encourage them to think critically about what they are reading in a nonacademic, noncompetitive environment. Clubs that enjoy success of this magnitude are built on a strong foundation of commitment from their facilitators, but they also function so well because they keep students coming back for more! Book Club presents 25 tried-and-true activities designed to make book club meetings — and students — shine. Activities are budget-friendly, easily implemented, flexible and applicable to nearly any book you and your students are reading. From Book Club Basics to The World’s Smallest Book Review, this book covers all the bases. So grab your books, gather your students and join the club! Grades 2–6. By Andrea Hetzke. 56 pp. ISBN 978-1-60213-055-5 2011.
