Secretaries have a big job in the literature circle and can get flustered. If they attempt to write their summaries during the L.C. meeting, they miss out on the discussion or hold up the group while trying to keep up with the questions and answers.
I created the Notes Template to help them stay on track and record the minimal amount of information during the meeting.
I also require that each group member is represented in the summary, so that I can see how each person is contributing. I've provided a Summary Template because I found that some students struggle with this concept.
I would use the Secretary Template as a scaffold that will be removed once students become proficient with the secretary role.
