Book Clubs Talk At Length

We are currently in the middle of our very first book club here in Grade Five. On Friday we watched a video that showcased how students make the conscious effort to talk at length about the book and build theories together.

We want to promote talking at length by:
1 – Giving examples of our own ideas as well as others.
2 – Restating each other’s ideas in our own words.
3 – Allowing other readers’ thoughts to change our mind.
4 – Add to what other members have said to build theories together.
5 – Use all the writing we do about reading to fuel this conversation.
Check out the video from our reading program below:
