This product contains what I use for Literature Circles in conjunction with "The Literature Response Journals" that you can purchase at ReallyGoodStuff.com. It contains:
Discussion Director Grading Rubric & Questions Starters that meet Blooms Higher Level Thinking (analyze, evaluate, and create)
Comprehension Strategy Overview
Literature Circle Grading Rubric
I purchased Literature Response Journals that contain the six comprehension strategies (Question, Predict, Clarify, Connect, Summarize & Evaluate). This is not included in this bundle but can easily be done in student notebooks.
Once students are trained on the discussion director handout and Literature Response, the Literature Circles run themselves! This is great for when you are at guided reading or have another teacher observing the group. The rubrics are in an "I" format so that you can have the students evaluate themselves or you can evaluate them for a grade.
