This is an outstanding 14 page unit that supports the Historical Fiction BOOK CLUBS for Reader's Workshop It is an entire unit of reading skills that can be used by any 4th-6th grade student during a course of study on historical fiction The resource perfectly walks students through a typical book club set up. The graphic organizers help students plan their reading, prepare their thinking, and organize their topics for discussions. The idea being that students (after the first set up session) come to book clubs already prepared to discuss the skills that are part of the historical fiction mini-units. There is still flexibility for students to choose their own topics for discussion. The beauty of this resource is that it perfectly helps organize students for pre, during, and post book club discussions.
