Miki Holbeck and Matt Wigdahl worked together for four years as educators. Miki was a Literacy Coordinator and Matt was a 3rd Grade teacher. They collaborated on many projects to share their love of reading with their students.
One of the projects they worked together extensively on was a children's book club process. As part of this process, students were allowed to choose books that interested them, (within a predetermined ability level range)
We believe the key to successful student book discussion is in the teacher being fully immersed in children's literature; also, in scaffolding processes that build students' independence and maturity for high level critical thought and comprehension.
This website is the storehouse for all our thoughts, documents and book reviews pertaining to student reading and discussion of books.
