CENTRAL SCHOOL JUNIOR GREAT BOOKS – Sign up by Jan 8th!
Junior Great Books® is a national program that encourages students in 2nd through 5th grades to read, think critically and participate in small group facilitated discussions of the material, lead by a parent volunteer. By participating in Shared Inquiry discussion, JGB students learn to read for meaning and support their own interpretation of the text. Junior Great Books is for the student who wishes to come prepared, discuss opinions and participate in a small group setting. Students will read, discuss and participate in fun activities that engage understanding and interpretation of the story. Groups meet every Friday during recess/lunch for 5 weeks, beginning January 19th and ending on Friday February 16th. Each week students will read a short story and meet with a parent volunteer to discuss it and have fun. Groups are organized by grade level. The cost for the book of stories is $19.00 and the book is yours to keep. Questions? Contact Lauren Breen at 609-502-1646 or firstname.lastname@example.org
