BOOK CLUB year 8
During YOUR English lessons and for homework we are going to read English books in a so called “BOOK CLUB”: You will be divided into groups.
Your homework for each Thursday is to read a certain amount of pages in your book (that you decide with your group) and to prepare an assignment. You will all have different assignments for each week. In the end everyone will have done all four assignments.
Here’s a description of the assignments:
DL: Discussion Leader (diskussionsledare)
You try to keep the discussion going by making sure that everyone speaks English all the time, that they have done their assignments and have a word in the discussion. Do they have any questions?
You also prepare three questions for your group to discuss and pick a scene that you remember! Explain why?
S: Summarizer (sammanfattare)
Make a brief summary, what is the most important in this episode? What makes the story exciting?
CD: Character Describer (persongranskare)
You collect information of a character in the book. Describe what you get to know about looks, personality, family, friends/enemies etc. Try to compare this person to yourself. Similarities? Differences? If you like make an illustration of the character too!
WH: Word Hunter (ordletare)
Look up new words that are difficult, unusual or important for the text. Use a wordlist and write the word in a sentence. Make a word game for your friends (A puzzle, memory game, a word snake etc.)
