Lit Club, Nueva's homegrown literature discussion program, has been a part of our school for almost thirty years! The curriculum offers students in grades 2-8 opportunities to read and discuss stories in small groups, led by trained adults. An outgrowth of our constructivist approach to learning, students explore literature with the spirit of inquiry, to think about an author's purpose, to appreciate the richness and complexity of stories, and to discover how productive a group’s creative and critical thinking can be.
Without a large number of parent volunteers, Lit Club would be unable to offer this small group experience to our Nueva students. Every volunteer counts! If you would like to participate, your training begins with a workshop called Grand Conversations that will help you develop, refine, and practice the skills needed to conduct literary discussions with children. During the school year, short morning sessions will continue to develop your skills and provide you with feedback and information about the curriculum, reading, and children's literature.
