My co-op class responsibility last fall was Bibliovores; a book discussion class for kids who devour books. This was a class I had been wanting to lead for a few years, so I was crazy-excited when the time came.
I am going to share my discussion notes with you over a series of posts because it's simply too much to jam into one post. I don't know if I will add the notes for every book because, honestly, I don't know if I still have them. Miss Organized I am not, but you already know that tidbit.
The students were responsible for reading one book each week. You could certainly slow the pace for non-bibliovores if you had a once/month book club in your home.
The syllabus (pictured below) includes a class description, target age, course outline, and supplies.
The first discussion guide should post next week. I will link the book titles below as I finish the posts.
Week 6: Book Bites (students presented a creative project based on a book)
Week 7: The Bronze Bow
Week 9: If the World Were a Village
Unfortunately, I did not save my notes for this book. We re-read the book in class and also looked at Material World.
We watched this video and discussed resourceful ways to solve problems and where we fit in the grand scheme–how can we help? A great resource for If the World Were a Village is the free lapbook at Homeschool Share.
