Introduction

Ardent Academy’s Book Club will be a weekly forum that engages readers to think outside of the box and closely explore realms of literature beyond the classroom. Students will improve their reading comprehension by examining plot, character revelations, and the artistic methods by which the author chooses to craft the narrative.

Throughout the course of ten weeks, four thoughtfully selected books will be assigned to stimulate discussion and deeper level thinking. The semester will include an online/classroom discussion for students to share their ideas posed by the instructor’s questions, as well as book reports, book reviews, and a final project. Parents are welcome to come in on the last day to view their student’s presentation.

Book Club aims to set a foundation for students to develop a reading habit. At the end of the course, students will have developed stronger literary analysis skills which will help them become better writers and communicators.
