Designed for small groups of public elementary school students in an after-school setting, Cool Classics! focuses on one classic book over a span of some 25 sessions. Each session begins with reading, followed by activities that relate back to the book’s themes and create the multi-faceted Cool Classics! experience.

Developed by Mara Tapp, an award-winning journalist and educator, Cool Classics! aligns with the Common Core Standards.
