Book Club Philosophy

Book Club is student-driven.  Our members vote on what the group reads, the movie versions we see, and our book-based projects.

Read the Book:   Since we only meet once a week, Book Club members are asked to read the book or listen to an audio version on their own time.

See the Movie:  We have been successfully partnering with the Westhampton Free Library to screen the movie versions during their “Middle School Book Club” after school and on weekends.

Book-Based Projects:  During our Friday morning meetings, we “bring the books alive” by engaging in hands-on activities based on the books we are reading.  While we are thus engaged, we chat about what we’ve read based on our Book Discussion Guidelines.
