This interactive digital notebook (Google Slides) can be used for any fiction book club or literature circle. Students apply their knowledge of elements of fiction and use textual evidence to support their judgments. The activities and journal questions look closely at character, theme, conflict, and setting. Everything you need to differentiate in your book clubs and literature circles. Rubric included.
There are five different book club notebooks. Each one was created to meet the needs of students who are at varying skill levels and to help them grow as readers and writers. All students are reviewing the same concepts, however the activities and questions vary. For example, notebook level A has answer frames to help students answer the journal questions.
You can choose to assign one notebook to the whole class or differentiate among your students and use more than one notebook. All the slides are editable. A rubric is included.
