This is a 10 page booklet for use in literature circles and guided reading for any book. It includes up to six weeks worth of weekly assignments and collaborative discussion questions. Each week focuses on a different reading strategies for close reading. Weekly discussion questions are informed by the individual questions that students answer.
HOW IT WORKS: Students get to chose their groups of 2-5 based on a common novel. Groups then set a reading schedule together with a six week maximum time limit. Individuals follow the reading schedule and fill in the workbook. Once a week student meet to engage in discussion and collaboration based on what they did in their individual workbook. If groups chose to finish their book in less than 6 weeks they are still required to fill in the entire workbook. If a student is absent on discussion days, then must come in with someone from their group during their own time (ideally your school has intervention or study hall time) to discuss the novel.
This is great for leveled library reading as well as student directed collaborative learning.
