For the love of reading! Every child is a reader and needs to develop love of good literature in preparation for Year 7 and beyond.
Our Book Club program introduces a love of classic novels and well-known books for greater understanding of quality books. Our book club will help encourage students to develop an understanding of the major literary elements of books.
Over the course of a term, students will be expected to read a book each two weeks to three weeks, so that they will read 3-4 quality novels. On the third week, Students will meet with a teacher and work in groups to discuss the literary elements of each novel:
- main characters
- other underlying issues
Students will independent read sections of the book they are studying in Book Club at home as part assigned work. They are required to think/complete questions about a literary element of their book and bring their discussion to a Book Club in next meeting to be shared with their group. Teachers will help students to develop a better understanding of their books.
