Literacy-Based Clubs

Would you like to meet new people who share your interests or share one of your passions with friends?  Would you like to take your eyes off of a screen and listen to a podcast, read a book, tell a story, or put to use all of the useless information that gathers in your mind?  Click on one of the tabs to find out more.

Book clubs offer many opportunities for students. You can read and share ideas with students, perhaps across the district; you can choose to read only books in a certain genre; you can explore new paths. Please click on the icon to express an interest in a book club. 

Do you love stories? Do you know someone who is a great storyteller or who has something important to share? In Storytelling Club, we will listen to story-based podcasts (like "StoryCorps" and "The Moth Radio Hour") discuss them, and if you'd like, create your own. Members might also wish to use the StoryCorps app to interview people with important stories and archive them at The Library of Congress and Central's library.

In this club, students work together to discuss and celebrate creative ideas. This club will allow you to explore your passions. Using TED-Ed resources, you'll be challenged to identify and shape the story only you can tell.

Share a favorite podcast with the club. Explore a topic. Learn something new. In this club, we'll read, um, listen to podcasts and discuss. Click on the image below to express interest.
