$150 for 10 weeks

September 18 – November 27
Angie Mcklenschek will be hosting an online book club for young lovers of historical fiction.
Historical fiction is a wonderful way to introduce to expand a person’s knowledge of the past. The historical fiction book club uses narratives that unfold in settings that realistically portray what life would have been like for young people thousands of years ago. The literature also matches the secondary cycle 1 social studies and English language arts progression of learning.
Students will spend 3-4 weeks on each book and discussions will be in the form of literature circles with specific roles such as discussion director, vocabulary enricher, literary luminary and world explorer assigned to each student. Roles will alternate on a weekly basis.
- Mara, Daughter of the Nile – Eloise Jarvis McGraw
- The Golden Goblet – Eloise Jarvis McGraw
- Hittite Warrior – Joanne Williamson
Classes will take place in Zoom on a weekly basis. A list of formative assessments will be provided ahead of time and reports will be provided at the end of the 10-week session.
