In this video we see Katie Doherty's middle schoolers conducting book clubs in heterogeneous groups discussing books of their own choosing. Katie shares her successes and challenges with book clubs.
Katie Doherty is an avid reader and writer. And who better to read and write with than a gaggle of 6th graders in Portland, Oregon? Through reading and writing workshops in her 6th grade language arts classroom, Katie and her students work to build the essential community they need to thrive as readers, writers, learners, and thinkers. Together, they all learn to take risks.
