This past week, I was invited by one of our sixth grade teachers to model a proficient book club. A small group of teachers read My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco. We then prepped quality questions and had a discussion in the middle of her classroom while the students watched us and used a rubric to score how we did. We had a wonderful discussion with a lot of meaningful questions and connections. What a great way to model how a book discussion should look like and sound like. We will be doing it again next year.
