I was wondering if anyone would be interested in having their class or small group participate in a virtual book club. We have gaggle accounts for our students in our district and is monitored by the district, administrators, and teachers. This could keep the excitement and love of reading and writing even after the state testing. I would like to incorporate this virtual book club in late April. We would need to collaborate to find the appropriate books for our classes and post book talks in a chat room. I am fortunate enough to have 9 accessible computers in my classroom. Most of my students do not have access to computers at home, so I would prefer to keep the chats or interaction during school hours.
- Small group literature circles
- Whole Group Read Aloud, with individual responses on Gaggle board
- Read Aloud of chapter book, with mixed whole group responses, small groups, and/or individual responses
Please let me know if you are interested in raising the relevance and real world application for a virtual literature circle.
