I have a Latin American Thematic Unit where I have a lit. circle group going in Literature and this is happening while we are doing the Latin American Unit from our Social Studies textbook. This download includes a list of novels that relate to Latin America in some way. I also have the books divided up into 5 sections. The 2nd page is a list of questions that the students answer in their lit. logs after reading each section of the novel. Each set of questions can be linked to the Common Core standards.
