This is a simple, student-friendly rubric used to assess the quality of a literature circle discussion. It is designed so that the teacher can walk around the room during literature circles and give each group a grade based on their conversations. It focuses on depth of conversation, student involvement, and correct use of English when speaking. It has 5 categories and is out of 15 points but can be adjusted for your class needs. There are two rubrics per page. I use it every Friday for weekly lit circle discussions for a 5 week unit. Thank you for downloading and don't forget to rate and comment. Your feedback is highly appreciated!
