Perfect for new teachers or teachers wanting a sound, practical way of incorporating lit circles in their English Language Arts classroom. I have been doing lit circles for 8 years, and this is the product of many changes and revisions. This 3-page handout, which is intended for students but is also teacher-instructive, includes a reading/lit circle schedule, guidelines on lit logs (double-entry journals that the students keep), expectations for lit circle discussions, and assessment. All you need are about 4-5 copies of about 5-6 different novels. I can answer your questions if you purchase.
