Our first Nonfiction Book Club chat is fast approaching. On Monday night at 8pm EST, we will come together for the first time to introduce ourselves and set the parameters for our club. We guide students who are starting book clubs to begin by laying some ground rules, discussing reading assignments, and considering goals and lenses for their reading. So, in the spirit of trying all the work ourselves, we can do precisely this on Monday night. So that you have some time to consider your responses, here are some of the questions that will guide our chat:
(Note: Our hashtag is #NonfictionBookClub.)
Q1: Please introduce yourself. From where are you chatting? #NonfictionBookClub
Q2: How often are you able to meet over the summer? Every two weeks? Monthly? #NonfictionBookClub
Q3: Let’s choose a reading assignment for our next meeting. About how much are you able to read before____? #NonfictionBookClub
Q4: How should we handle cases when a club member does not complete the required reading or writing assignment? #NonfictionBookClub
Q5: Let’s talk lenses for our reading. What are some of your goals as a reader of NF for the #NonfictionBookClub?
Q6: What are some of your goals as a teacher of NF Reading for the #NonfictionBookClub?
Q7: Are there any other ideas or concerns you’d like to share, or anything else you would like the club to know? #NonfictionBookClub
I am so looking forward to chatting with everyone on Monday and officially kicking off our summer reading. See you soon!
