Self-Paced Teen Book Club

Scythe (Book 1) by Neal Shusterman

In a world where humanity has conquered hunger, disease, and even death, only scythes are the ones who can end life. Two teens are chosen as apprentices to be trained in the art of taking life. It's a job they don't want, but the consequences of failure are steep.

This is the first book in a trilogy.

How does a self-paced book club work?

A self-paced book club is a great option for digging deeper into a text and doing some activities to help with your understanding and analysis of the text and its themes.

Included in this class, you'll find the following:

  • A suggested reading schedule (broken into four weeks)
  • A PDF reading guide with comprehension questions for each week
  • Vocabulary activities
  • Writing/multimodal project prompts related to the reading
  • Rubrics for parents/guardians to give feedback on projects
  • Links to supplemental resources related to the text and its themes

The class was designed to take about a month to complete, but you can complete it at whatever pace works for you!
