Boomerang Book Club: November 2019
Teens discuss movies enthusiastically all the time—there’s no reason why they can’t do this with books too! It’s not a new skill, just a transfer of skill.
Brave Writer’s online Boomerang Book Club (ages 13-18) gives students opportunities to figure out what they think and vocalize their thoughts!
We allow your students to feel the sweet thrill of Strong Opinion and Clever Insight. Teens can express their thoughts about what they read and experience the kind support and enthusiasm of a writing coach and fellow homeschool readers.

Our Boomerang Book Club is a wonderful sneaky way to draw out the writer. Teens feel like they are talking not writing— even though they are!
