Zoom Book Club Best Practices:

1)      Find a quiet place in your home where you are less likely to be interrupted.
2)      Use the “mute” function on the screen when you are not speaking in case unexpected noises occur in your background.
3)      If you need to move around with your device, you can also mute your picture temporarily. It is the option next to the audio mute.
4)      As the moderator, I will try to be sure everyone gets a chance to speak. If you have made a point, please allow others to answer to the same topic before moving on to another one.
5)      To be sure all get a chance to respond and not accidentally interrupt, please raise your hand, either to the camera or using the “raise hand” option on your screen. This option is on the bottom left of the screen if you are using a phone or a tablet. If you are on a computer, you have to first click on Participants and then click on Raise Hand.
6)      After we have had 30-40 minutes of good book discussion, feel free to bring up related topics of other books, films, current events, etc. Thanks!!
