Book Club Discussions- 4.27.2012
Last Friday, we finished our first goals for our current book clubs. Before meeting to discuss the books, however, we spent about 8 minutes generating some thick and thin questions to fuel our discussion of the books. While we certainly were not limited to these question stems, we used these question cards to help generate thick questions: http://www.lauracandler.com/filecabinet/literacy/PDFLC/qcards.pdf.
So how are our book club discussions structured? Well, book club members take turns leading the discussion by being the discussion director, and they use this guide to help keep the book club on track: http://www.lauracandler.com/filecabinet/literacy/PDFLC/director.pdf. (To fit our needs for this discussion, however, we skipped steps 2 and 4.)
Check out the video below that I (Mrs.Allen) captured as a snapshot of a few of these amazing discussions:
