Sixth & Eighth Grade Summer Reading Book Club for MBMS Students

Facilitated by MBUSD’s K-12 Literacy TOSA – Michelle Syverson

This Book Club will support and guide students through the reading and understanding of two required summer reading texts for incoming sixth and eighth students at MBMS. Book Clubs participants will attend three sessions only. Participating students will read, reflect, and annotate two pre-selected required summer reading texts, one fiction and one nonfiction. Reading will be assigned outside of the Book Club sessions. Guided focus questions will be offered prior to the reading of each text, to support student understanding and comprehension. During Book Club sessions, Mrs. Syverson will facilitate collaborative discussions focused around the key elements and features of each text. Student participants will come away with knowledge, notes, and annotations that support two of their summer reading requirements. More specifics will be sent once registration and payment are received. Sessions will be offered on either Mondays or Tuesdays for three consecutive weeks in July.

$200 per participant – limited space – Register by June 10
