Small group bookclubs have been a major hit in 3/4DX this term. The students were given a range of books to preview and from that self-select the bookclub that they would like to be a part of. Bookclub is a great chance for students to share the journey of a story together and share feelings and experiences throughout. Being a part of a small bookclub allows students to connect with a book in a meaningful manner and create discussion and share thoughts around aspects of the book that are enabled through a shared experience.
