Book clubs are a social way for adults and students to connect to the literature they read. Using engaging techniques, both digital and analog, teachers can use the format of book clubs to foster a love of reading in students.

This edWebinar illustrates a different way of implementing book clubs in the classroom, providing opportunities for students to interact with new reading strategies and produce engaging, relevant projects that offer opportunities to spark conversations around modern-day digital dilemmas. Viewers will leave this recorded presentation with an implementation plan, sample activities, and opportunities to customize the way they launch book clubs in their classrooms.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and librarians of all grade levels.
