Literature Circles Package & Overview

Today you chose your novels for our Literature Circle / Book Club Study for the month of December. Remember that you are to be shifting your role / responsibility from week to week. Here is the organizer package to help you with what you are to be exploring within your various roles.

You must have your responsibility completed for each Friday’s in-class discussion with your peers. Your post can go up for the Monday but you must be ready for the conversation each Friday!

NOTE: If you chose to be a group of 3 you MUST have two group members double up roles each week. Otherwise, your conversation will be lacking the depth necessary to explore the novel on a rich level. (Yes, this is an addendum to the message I gave in class today so be aware!)
