Book clubs differentiate instruction to meet the needs of individual learners. 

Book Club

The benefits of book clubs: 

  • ALL students participate in independently reading text at their instructional level.New Shop Icons II.003
  • Students receive small group instruction and intervention catered to their unique needs.
  • Groups are flexible; students move up in level across the year.
  • Students practice with a peer, and gain confidence as readers.
  • Students demonstrate the transfer of skills.
  • Students broaden their reading interests.

A unique feature of the book club units:

Students will practice the same skill each day, no matter what book they are reading!  The teacher teaches one whole-class mini-lesson, then all students practice the same skill in the book they have been assigned.  Each student finishes their book on the same day!  It's brilliant!

  • My students thank you for selecting such excellent books that inspire them to become lifelong readers.

  • I have used book clubs in my classroom previously, but they were unorganized and didn't have much individual accountability. Now I have the tools to turn them into engaging, challenging experiences for all my readers.

  • I love this program because of the student discourse it encourages, and how the strategies and techniques can be used with any book my students read!
