Asynchronous online engagement in between
CHM’s Virtual Teacher Book Club is back! This time we will follow middle schooler, Claire, as she races to figure out what—or who—has been haunting her after she helped on her father’s ghost-themed Chicago bus tour. Scritch, Scratch: A Ghost Story was written by Chicago author Lindsay Currie for a middle school audience and features many familiar Chicago haunts and histories. A second, secret book, revealed midway through book club, will give us more historical context about the events surrounding Claire’s haunting. During the final zoom session, we’ll be joined by author Lindsay Currie to discuss the book and answer any questions you might have!
Online engagement fosters rich discussions, practical resources, and strategies to incorporate both fiction and nonfiction writings into classroom instruction.
$50. Books are included with the registration fee. 18 PD hours; must attend both sessions and participate in online discussions.
