Students are to follow the directions in a printable packet to delve into their Literature Group book more deeply. This packet can be applied to any book, so having multiple books going will work. Students will focus on:
Main character's traits and support from the book for each trait
Secondary or supporting characters - describing them
Major and minor conflicts
Summary of story (beginning, middle, and ending)
Place to write the paragraph of exactly what they will read for their Book Talk.
A rubric is also attached to score both the packet and recording of their Book Talk.
