Annotation: This resource provides ideas for creating and leading literacy learning clubs, which help students learn to love reading and develop social skills and emotional maturity at the same time. Ideas and classroom examples are given in all content areas: language arts, science, social studies, math, and in other areas such as art, movement, and technology. Part 1 surveys research, theory, and pedagogy related to literacy learning clubs. Part 2 presents ideas for literacy learning clubs in each discipline, and Part 3 gives suggestions for literacy learning clubs outside the classroom. Each chapter ends with a summary, reflection questions, and activities directing readers to create lessons and study units for real-life classrooms and literacy learning clubs.
