Literature Circle Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Amy Biehl Charter High School

  • 6 people are interested

Volunteer spend 45 minutes a few times a quarter in a book club-style literature circle with a group of 10th or 11th graders discussing a text. All you have to do is complete the assigned reading for the meeting and come with questions and insights about the text. You can model a love of reading, critical thinking, and discussion skills.

"The beauty of the Lit Circle program is that we can come together to share insights, discuss ideas, ideals, and have fun. I look at these kids differently than I did when I first walked in the classroom. I see their depth, passion, and enthusiasm and I also see their youth, innocence and (sometimes) folly. Hopefully, when they see me they see that there is more to being an adult than wearing a suit and going to work five days a week. Hopefully."

-George Weir, volunteer '06-’13
