1-31-13 Groups: Annalisa , Devan, Jacqueline, Josie , Richard Ashlee, Holly, Laura, Paul Erin, Jeannie, Michael, Tammy Tonights goals: Generate 3 group projects, each of which has a different focus. For each project, generate a reading list for the group which could be a single book that everybody reads OR a different book for each member.

Book Talks Last time, we didnt finish discussing Between Shades of Gray. In your book club groups, using BSG as a starting point, discuss ways to might use YA novels as the main texts for a Holocaust (or literature of the Holocaust) unit or as supplemental texts. What might you do with a novel other than study it? Readers theater: Read aloud several key passages to illustrate for us some key idea (or even mood) from the novel(s). Multi-media: Compose and display/perform a presentation based on the

novel(s), using words, images, and/or sounds to show us a key idea or theme. Multi-genre: Using on your novels as evidence, write a multi-genre paper (to be displayed in class) that contributes to our understanding of the event or time period we are studying. Poetry: Take several key scenes or events from your novel(s) and turn each into a poem, so the collection of poems tells us something about the novels. Music: Create and play a soundtrack for your novel, and explain the reason for including each musical selection. Meet here or elsewhere. Report back in 35 minutes. (30 work; 5 break) What might you do with this book in class?

Book clubs will meet for three different sets of discussions. For each set of discussions, generate a reading list for the group which could be a single book OR a different book for each member. Differences: Firegirl Wonder Rules Smiles Out of My Mind

Jerry Spinelli books: Maniac Magee Jason & Marceline Space Station Seventh Grade Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush? 1960s: Countdown Graphic novels: American Born Chinese Maus I & II Persepolis

V for Vendetta Beowulf Vampire series: Vampire Academy Vampire Diaries Chronicles of Vladimir Tod Civil Rights: A Wreath for Emmitt Till Witness The Watsons Go to Birmingham The Return of Gabriel

For a least one discussion, your group will give a presentation to demonstrate what you might do with your novel(s) in class. You are free to

meet in a computer lab (to generate lists of books) if you like. Book clubs will meet for three different sets of discussions. For each set of discussions, generate a reading list for the group which could be a single book OR a different book for each member. Come back in an hour with a tentative list of projects/books.

For a least one discussion, your group will give a presentation to demonstrate what you might do with your novel(s) in class. You are free to

meet in a computer lab (to generate lists of books) if you like. Working on Book Club Discussions: Feb 7 & 14: Discussion 1 Feb 21 & 28: Discussion 2 Mar 7 & 14: Discussion 3 Mar 21: Book Club Paper Due Note: This are self-directed discussions. Pay attention to the

process as you experience it, so you can consider how much direction or freedom to give your students if you use book clubs. Looking ahead: Well discuss Kizzy Ann Stamps (and, I hope, some other books relevant to the Civil Rights era) on March 28, so you can focus on your book club projects between now and then. For next week: If you havent yet come up with at least a topic for your formal paper, do so; well describe the topics in class. Begin working on Book Club Project #1. Continue reading widely.
