A Literature Circle is a FUN, engaging activity in which students work as a team to analyze literature. Literature Circles easily lend themselves to effortless differentiation because students can be grouped according to specific reading levels, or low level students can be given a modified role, while still contributing to the group's success. I created these resources to use in a 6th grade classroom, but they may easily be adapted for 4th or 5th grade.These printable are low-prep, easy for students to use, and can be chosen according to the selected. Students love completing the peer evaluation at the end of the Literature Circle work period and work hard to earn a "check mark" from their fellow team members.
Included in this resource:
-Student Guideline Page with clear expectations
-7 Different Graphic Organizers (for 7 different roles)
-Peer Evaluation Rubric
