Book Club Boys is just that, a book club for boys. Except there’s no reading required and no need to sit in a chair. For half an hour the small weekly after-school club is immersed in listening to an age appropriate and ambitious chapter book read aloud. The book club leader is dynamic. He might get up. She might expostulate or whisper. By whatever means he will excite, awaken and enthrall your young boy with the heady joys of literature.
For the second half of the club meeting the boys are guided in individually feeding back their emotional and intellectual responses to what they have heard. They support their views with the three thinking tools of What, Why and How, drilling down into the writing techniques that have nudged their reader response.
The outcomes of this immersive and interactive literary experience support the learning objectives of the National Curriculum to deliver improved:
Comprehension and analysis
Confident and articulate thinking and speaking
Empathy and emotional development
Mental Well Being
