Everyone is invited
Let your child share their reading and thoughts with others around the country reading the same book
Virtua Book Clubs offer:
- Narrative style, ‘’human story’’ approach to book readings.
- Boost each participant’s communication, curiosity, confidence and culture
- Learners to collaboratively identify, critique and discuss the big ideas and major points in the book
- Help students develop strong skills in analysis and literary discourse
- Builds reflective “takeaways” that generate solutions to problems exposed in the book
- Creative writing
- Cultivate social skills while interacting with peers
And coming soon:
- 12 book clubs based on grade level, moderated by live teachers
- 3 books per year for every book club
In the Fall of 2020, Virtua will launch a series of live Book Clubs based on grade level. Club Leaders will be certified teachers. They will select an eBook for every learner to read according to the selected grade level, assign reading assignments, request learners to answer written questions about their reading using interactive text inside the eBook, and engage in regular live online sessions and activities about what the students read. Each teacher-led Book Club will read 3-4 books per year.
The Book Clubs will inspire curiosity and interest in the students while also giving them a chance to express themselves and interact with other students from across the United States.

Virtua will conduct this innovative educational activity on a digital platform that has been specially designed for this purpose. In the future Virtua will also enable subscribers to launch their own Reading Clubs using the same platform.
Participants will be required to register for specific Book Clubs and will need to be subscribers to the Virtua program. All books read by the Virtua Book Club members will be checked out of Virtua Library.
If you would like to register your interest in one of our Virtua Books Clubs please click here.
Otherwise, as we approach Fall 2020, please check back on our Events Page, where we will list events launching each grade level’s Book Club and enable Virtua subscribers to register for specific Clubs.
