MzT's Reading Teams and Book Clubs
Book clubs encourage book choice, the one indicator of reading improvement. My class has an outside reading requirement and if the students wish to join together to form a book club to read the same book, that's fine. Class time will be scheduled for discussion and collaboration on book assignments. A Reading Celebration will be scheduled when outside reading is due.
Reading Teams will collaborate on a variety of assignments. Digital assignments involving information material as well as literature studies will involve weekly reading teams.
