Some teachers may like the kids to use audio in class. If your students want to participate using audio, they MUST have a headset with a microphone. We have a new online classroom this year, and the computer microphones give off too much feedback. That is distracting to the entire class. Students will not be allowed to use the microphone on their computer. If they do not have a headset, they will only be able to participate in typed chat, not audio.
This is a book discussion group LED BY STUDENTS. It is not intended to be a for credit class, although parents could use the books discussed as a starting point for their families literature credit.
As long as there are students willing to lead the group, this could run in the fall.
