This is the literature circle journal that I created for my class. The first actual page of the journal gives the students steps to follow to successfully complete the journal and discussion. The second page has the work for the students to complete. The first task students must do is answer a question before reading. This can be a teacher created question. This journal was not designed around giving the students job. Each student writes three discussion questions for the discussion. Before each discussion students pick a new discussion director who will make sure the discussion is completed. The last few questions ask students to think about and rate their discussion.
