Book Clubs or Literature Circles! Ready to use! Apply to any novel! This resource promotes independence and personal responsibility. I developed these materials to put the focus of book clubs back on reading. These resources give guidance as students independently/partner read novels. The activity sheets promote higher level questions and group discussions. Since I have incorporated these resources into my book clubs, my students love of reading and the desire to join a book club has drastically increased! The response pages provide quick ways to assess individuals and discuss any misconceptions.

**Note - This resource does not identify specific "jobs" that are traditionally associated with literature circles. Instead, all students take on leadership roles and prepare in advance so they can have an active role in the discussion. Jobs can easily be incorporated if you choose.
