If you are looking for a higher-level, CCSS-based literature circle, you have come to the right place. This product is designed to be used independently/cooperatively by students reading at or around a Level X (F&P).
The product includes daily "lesson plans" for students to follow, including objectives, vocabulary, during reading questions, and after reading activities.
You can also modify this product for direct instruction, but it works well in my classroom as a literature circle. Each student has a role/responsibility, and the students enjoy teaching each other and themselves.
Thanks for looking!
