This comes with all the information and materials you need to set up literature circles. Here are the included documents: Info and Guidelines Handout with Teacher Notes, Reading Log Chart, Write-Around Prompts and Template, 25-Word Abstract, Role Sheets, Thinkmarks Basic Four, and Thinkmarks Extra Four.

Nonfiction text for reading is not included. What I've usually done for nonfiction text is locate a magazine or newspaper article on current or pop events. Or I copy a section out of a content-based text book (like science or history). Sometimes I tailor-select the passages based on my classes' personalities. Here are two current short pieces that I would use in my own classroom:

I do have some short fiction passages for practice included in the following packages:

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

English Teacher, grades 7 - 12, Author, and Curriculum Writer

MY TEACHING STYLE

Have you ever sat in a class where you felt like you didn't matter? It's the worst! My teaching style aims to eliminate the I-dont-belong attitude among students in 21st century education by including students in the learning process. My curriculum materials are interactive, requiring students to think about the material that they are learning. It is a win-win situation: we like teaching when students are learning, and students like learning when it is enjoyable! You can count on Teacher Tricks to give you practical classroom materials that will hold your students' attention while teaching them a ton.
