Learn how to set up a book club in the classroom, as part of regular mathematics instruction! This session explores how to adapt book talks/book circles from ELA to engage students in the intriguing stories laced throughout mathematics history--fact really is stranger than fiction--especially in mathematics!

You'll leave with ideas for differentiated book circles, lesson plans, book discussion topics, and ways to engage community members in the book club. The session will include book titles used with students from a variety of reading levels, as well as planning and pacing ideas.

Come learn about this practice that is sure to become the highlight of your mathematics teaching experience during the next year!
