Discussion Resources / Recursos de discusión 

Book Clubs are an opportunity for students to socialize around great literature! In order to fully realize the experience, it is critical that the expectations for discussion are clear, they have tools to reflect on their books, and receive feedback to improve. The following are our suggestions of how to facilitate book clubs successfully.

Recursos para cada nivel de grado

These are for teachers and students. Teachers can use them for Book Talks to introduce the book choices in each set. Students will use them to set the purpose and direct their work. They are divided into three parts - Antes de leer (Before Reading), Durante la lectura (During Reading), and Después de leer (After Reading).
