There are 6 Book Club meetings per school year, usually with 5 books and one film event. Each book matches with one of the six We the People units as a way to guide connections and conversations (use of We the People in your classroom is not required). Books are picked with an eye towards feeding teachers’ brains and having adult conversation (not necessarily for use in the classroom!).
As a bonus, each meeting is worth 3 PDU hours, for a total of 18 per school year. In addition, members of the Book Club can register at a reduced price for 1 credit from Lewis & Clark Graduate School. (If you are interested in applying for graduate credit, please note that upon check out.)
