How does a self-paced book club work? 

A self-paced book club is a great option for digging deeper into a text and doing some activities to help with your understanding and analysis of the text and its themes. 

Included in this class, you'll find the following:

  • A suggested reading schedule (broken into four weeks)
  • A PDF reading guide with comprehension questions for each week 
  • Vocabulary activities
  • Writing/multimodal project prompts related to the reading
  • Rubrics for parents/guardians to give feedback on projects
