SUMMER PROGRAMS, 2021

Book chats, Book clubs, Book classes

BOOK CHATS

Three months, three books, three conversations!

Over the course of the summer, students read one book per month. At the end of each month, we meet as a group of peers to talk about the story! 

June: Wolf Hollow, Lauren Wolk

July: The Night Diary, Veera Hiranandani

August: Mananaland, Pam Munoz Ryan

During our online book chat, I'm hoping to arrange special guest appearances from the author!

BOOK CLUBS

Gain Academic Confidence

Book clubs are happening all summer long! The groups run for roughly three weeks, depending on the length of the book. Students receive a tailored book-guide. We meet in the mornings, before noon (est) on Mondays and Wednesdays.

BOOK CLASSES

Classes in the summer? Do not fret!

Book classes are exactly that! Complete with reading assignments, writing assignments, and feedback, a book course helps students sharpen their reading and writing skills. 


These online courses are fun, laid back, and positive learning experiences! 

We read. We discuss the story. We write about the story. 

The course runs for the duration of the reading. This summer, there will be classes on several different classic and contemporary tales for young adult and middle grade students.
