Online Book Club at Marianapolis Prep
The Online Book Club invites students to enhance classroom English skills through a 10-day online literature course. Custom designed for the age and skills of users, the literature modules provide access to an academic English class designed and taught by Marianapolis instructors. Each 10-day module centers around one children's or young adult fiction novel. Courses increase reading comprehension and critical analysis proficiency while reinforcing each student's ability to express ideas and insight. Students will receive a virtual orientation for the online book club learning platform. Every student will be confident in the academic expectations for the module and equipped with the technological understanding to succeed. Although courses are non-graded, the instructional tools used in the virtual classroom will empower every student to track their comprehension progress.
How It Works:
Over 10 days, students read independently and login to the online learning platform. Readers are guided to explore the text through virtual group discussion, age-appropriate comprehension exercises, written responses, and video conferencing with their American teacher. Participants emerge with a comprehensive understanding of the novel and increased confidence as students of English.
Who Is Ready for The Online Book Club?
All students who have a foundation in English or ESL study may access junior, middle, or upper school courses (for approximately grades 6-9). By prioritizing personalized instruction and immersing students in a blended curricular approach, Marianapolis instructors equip all students with the tools for success in the virtual classroom.
