It’s almost time! Next week on November 4, 2015 at 4pm EST, I will be teaching a master class at the Read Aloud Revival membership site. The class is called How to Engage Your Teens with Books and it’s all about getting your teens reading and having discussions with them.
Topics for Engaging Teens with Books
What can you expect from the class time on working with teens and books?
- Strategies– How do we go about it? What if our kids don’t like books? Hear about what we have done as a family, including my husband.
- Talking Points– Where do you begin with a discussion? Where do you go once you begin?
- Resources– What’s out there to help us out? What’s worked for us?
- What to do if you haven’t read a book– We’ve all been there and we’ll be there again. Does this count you out for a good discussion?
I want homeschooling parents to be empowered to discuss books with their teens regardless of their background with books or whether or not their teens like books. This is especially a fun topic for me as I was not a fiction reader when I was younger (and I still do not enjoy contemporary adult fiction). But, books are a huge part of our homeschooling and all of our kids, regardless of their interests enjoy a good discussion on books. Translation: You don’t have be or have categorically book loving people in your home to make this work.
