Is the Literary Book Club?
The Literary Book Club helps to promote literacy by encouraging
students to read books, read other students’ book reviews
and book reports, and to share their own ideas and opinions of books
they have read.
We would like to thank
you for using the Literary Book Club. If you have any questions,
please feel free to contact any of the committee members below.
Barby Hardy, LMS Liason
Dayna Lykins, TRT

Students share their thoughts on a book they have
read in the form of a book review. They can go through the writing
process online to submit their writing. Guidelines for what the
student writing should include is provided during the submission.
Students can search by book title, author or school to read other
Once a student clicks submit is the writing automatically
put on the website?
When a student completes a submission, that student's teacher is
responsible for approving the submission. If the teacher feels as
though the student did the best work they could, the submission
should be approved. If the teacher does not approve the work, the
teacher can add comments to improve the submission.
What is a Book Chat?
Book Chats are designed to give students an opportunity
to “discuss” literature. Soon, teachers can schedule
times for their students to discuss literature with other students
in the district. As this capability becomes available, project coordinators
will be scheduling topics and times for classes to chat with others
classes about the books they have read.
Literacy Site of the Week
Each week a different website will be featured which
promotes literacy. Student activity websites as well as teacher
resources sites will be featured.
