This literature circle is in the style of a Book Club in which students read various novels and discuss literary elements with their peers.
It is the perfect project for any high school English class as you can use ANY TEXTS you have available to you. This project is specifically designed to work with any and all novels!
This project can replace the traditional classroom core text or can be used as an Independent Novel Study that runs concurrently to classroom units of study.
This is the PERFECT project for oral communication. It works particularly well for lower ability high school students who have difficulty communicating ideas and critical thinking in written pieces.
This project has been successful in all secondary grades 9, 10, 11, and 12. Students work collaboratively with a small group of students to come to a consensus on the main theme of the novel.
This project is fully complete, ready-to-use, and includes the following elements:
-Instructions on the specific format
