Why form a book group?
- We learn far more when we talk about a new idea than when we read passively.
- We can only take in so much new information at one time. Talking about the book in a group allows the ideas to become more memorable.
- Listening to what others have to say can help prompt new understandings.
How can you form a book group?
- Invite some interested friends or colleagues to begin reading with you, chapter by chapter, dialoguing along the way.
- Read the book on your own first. Consider why the information is beneficial and jot down some key ideas. Share your newfound insights with a few friends or colleagues and invite them to join you as a small reading group. Read the book again along with your friends and colleagues and talk about it chapter by chapter. See what new insights the second reading brings!
- For group or bulk orders of the book call Rowman & Littlefield-Education at 1-800-462-6420 and choose option 3. Be sure you’re ordering the 2nd Edition.
What resources might you need?
- The Group Guide offers suggestions for how to build and maintain an intentional dialogue.
- The chapter by chapter Discussion Questions offer questions for dialogue sessions.
