8th Grade Book Worms/Bearcat Book Club
Book Worms/Bearcat Book Club is an enrichment course designed to take advantage of the advanced skills our students are developing in analysis, reflection, and ultimately rhetorical response to quality literature that inspires our students to experience the joy of reading and exploration of the world of wonder in great books.
● Students will engage with high quality text using what we refer to as close reading strategies improving skills in vocabulary, reading comprehension, and critical thinking.
● Response, reflection, and deep dive analysis to text is the intention of the class using dynamic written skill development, and opportunity for dialogue and presentation such as Socratic Seminar.
Students progress will be monitored in participation and written products.
