Junior Great Books
Tuesday, December 5, 2017 4:25 AM


The Junior Great Books program is coming back to Lake Harriet! Sign­up forms are on their way for students to participate in Junior Great Books and parents to volunteer to lead a discussion group. The deadline for submission is 12/19. Junior Great Books will start mid to late January and is open to 2nd through 5th grade students. In this program, students read age appropriate literature and then discuss the material using a ‘shared inquiry’ approach which encourages students to search for meaning in stories and to consider and express different points of view. The discussion groups, led by parent volunteers, help students increase their comprehension, interpretive thinking, and oral and written language skills. Second and third graders will meet on Wednesday mornings at the lower campus from 8:40 to 9:25. Fourth and fifth graders will meet at the upper campus on Thursday mornings from 8:40 to 9:25. If you are interested in signing your 2nd ­5th grade student up, getting more information, or volunteering to lead a discussion group please contact Andy Schoenke ­or (503) 702.1621. Thank you.
