Online Book Clubs

RISE is offering online middle school book clubs for kids ages 11 – 15.

We welcome both native English and English language learners.

Each “club” consists of 6 one-hour sessions. 

Cost = 135€/6-week session

Begins the week of September 21

Each book club will be facilitated by a certified English teacher (with a love for reading!).

Students will need access to the internet (with Zoom downloaded), highlighters, pen, and a copy of the book.

 

What will the students be reading?
Because it is extremely important for book club participants to be invested and interested in the book they are reading, the books will be determined by the students of each “club”.  Students will choose a book from a list of possible book club options a week before the class begins.  Whichever book receives the most votes, will become the official read for that book club.

Past Book Club Choices:
A Long Walk to Water, Linda Sue Park
Can You See Me?,  Libby Scott/Rebecca Westcott
Fish in a Tree, Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Ghost, Jason Reynolds
I am Malala, Malala Yousafzai
Not My Fault, Cathy Howe
The Boy At the Back of the Class,  Onjali Q. Raúf
The Hate You Give, Angie Thomas

When are the online book clubs?
The groups are organized by age due to the content of each book.  However,  students are welcome to join a book club that is not their age group.  Multiage book groups are extremely successful (and we will adjust the book choices for the students accordingly).
