Literature Circles - Focus on Andrew Clements

       Literature circles are small groups of students who are reading and discussing a book together.  I give the students jobs to do as they read and then once a week we meet and discuss.  At the end of each meeting, we decide what our focus will be for the next section and how far we want to read. 
Update:
      Students have completed reading their books and have been assigned a Reponse to Literature (RTL on the mega-planner.)  The rough draft will be due Thursday, 3/22 and the final draft will be due 3/29.  The directions, paper format (sample response), thesis starters and rubric are all attached below.  We went over all this information in class and the students are aware that these resources are on the website.
