Literature circles are such a great way to model effective reading strategies and what readers should be thinking about. This is also a great tool to have older students talk about the text and share with each other. Each student is assigned a role (or pick), read within their groups, complete their role, and then share out with the entire class during discussion days. This also helps quiet students share their thoughts. As students are sharing the teacher takes score of how many time a student raises their hand and speaks. I normally grade it based on how many times the student with the most points speaks. For example, if students A speaks 15 times, and students B speaks 3 times, their score is a 3/15.

Great tool for older kids! My students love doing this and I have used this tool as an observation lesson because I am able to model reading strategies and the kids are super eager to share; which equals, hands up! Enjoy!
