Course Description

In this interactive book club, we will read and discuss books in a meaningful way. In each session, we will read different books and explore their characters and major themes. Students will learn how to engage with books by discussing how characters interact with each other as the story develops. Each lesson will be highly interactive. Discussion questions will facilitate effective group discussion skills and boost critical thinking. 

While reading each book, students will also be guided to complete a book review in which they can discuss the characters, plots, themes, and ideas in the book.

  1. Develop creativity and critical thinking skills through reading discussion
  2. Discuss major themes and examine elements of plot, specifically conflict, climax, and resolution
