American Revolution Book Club Project

Eighth graders just finished the American Revolution Book Club Project in Mrs. Galecki’s reading class.   Each club had four scheduled reading and note-taking assignments to complete over a four week period.  After completing each assignment, students shared their prepared analysis and response to the text during a scheduled, structured Book Club discussion session.   Students proved that they can engage in student-led, higher-level critical discussions about literature.  They shared their analysis of their texts' literary techniques, vocabulary, historical facts, conflicts, point of view and themes. 

Students will continue their study of the American Revolution when they return from Thanksgiving Break by reading The Declaration of Independence.
