We have been addressing the CCSS Speaking and Listening Standards 1, 2, and 3. We have practiced what it takes to be in a book club. Reading, asking questions, listening, answering questions, etc. We have been using informational text and would now like to venture out with an authentic audience. We will be using the book Chicken Big by Keith Graves.
We would like for the other class to break into small groups and read the book and then have each group come up with a question based on the text. You could even have our students refer to specific text for answers. We will do the same on our end. We cannot receive calls so we would have to work with a school that we could call.
