In reading workshop, book clubs provide a structure for meaningful, purposeful conversations about books. Students meet regularly in small groups to study and talk about a book they are reading together. As kids read, they are encouraged to stop and jot from time to time to gather ideas and text-evidence to support their thinking. In this way, book clubs provide an authentic purpose for reading closely, note-taking, and writing about reading--to prepare for great conversation.
