This is a weekly literature circle package. Each group would get a different book. I would have the students create their own bookmark which states what role they they have for the week, what chapters they need to read that week, and what the date is. I would have between 4 or 5 students in a group. Student would get this package and the schedule would be as follows:
Monday - Read chapters with their groups
Tuesday- Fill out a Reading Power page (Adrienne Gear). This would be a connection, question, prediction, visualization, inference, or transformation that the reader had about what they have read.
Wednesday- Complete their job ( Literary Luminary, Illustrator, Discussion Director, Character Investigator, or Summarizer). These jobs rotate every week.
Friday - Catch up day (if needed)
This is a 4 week program that allows students to work together to have a deeper understanding of what they have read.
