Description

For literature circles or book clubs reading historical fiction, here are eight individual pages of handouts for students to use as they read. These pages are very engaging and students ask, "Can we do this again?"

These are similar in concept to literature circle handouts though not as lengthy. They would be great with guided reading as well.

The responses are generic and lend themselves to most HISTORICAL FICTION novels:
- tracing a character's actions from a historical viewpoint,
- evaluating actions and decisions,
- noting imagery, cause/effect, problem/solution,
- vocabulary and figurative language analysis, and more.
I include a formatted page without titles so you may add response prompts of your own.

Also included are pages for extended independent historical fiction reading: Book Buddy forms, journal response book marks, and a short two page book report form designed to post for others to read.

I include a puzzle page for early finishers.

The Common Core State Standards ELA 6,7,8 RL and RI that are addressed with the individual prompts are indicated for your reference on the file.

Please see the Preview for samples of two pages.
