Students practice making and finding meaning in their reading through a book club model. Students' Motivation to read can increase when they choose their own books, and time to discuss questions, observations, and connections in a social environment can help build Background Knowledge, Genre Knowledge, and Vocabulary.
Watch as these fourth grade students talk about their questions and observations about the books they are reading. As they discuss the books they have chosen, they animatedly engage with one another, sharing Background Knowledge and making inferences and predictions that strengthen Verbal Reasoning.
Videos are chosen as examples of strategies in action. These choices are not endorsements of the products or evidence of use of research to develop the feature.
See how Bookopolis allows participants to rate and review books that they have read. These reviews and ratings create a global Literacy Environment and expand readers' Social Supports, as they share books with peers all around the world.
