Product Description
#2fortuesday Printables, Activities, Literature Circles, Book Talks, Graphic Organizers, Novel Study

Give the responsibility back to the students with this Literature Circle/Book Talk resource! It sets students up for success by guiding them through how to discuss a novel in a group.

This packet is laid out as having 4 members in each group that go through 4 "cycles". When I use this packet with students, I assign each a job for an amount of time, and then they rotate. Students are to complete the "job" each time that they read.

Jobs include:
1. Discussion Director: This person keeps the group on track and is the leader of the group. This person also has a job to do while reading.
2. Practical Predictor: This person records predictions during reading that relate to character motive and events.
3. Language Lover: This person keeps tracks of words such as "Hardest Words".
4. Visualizer: This person sketches what he/she visualizes during reading as well as describes with words.

This packet is meant to supplement a novel study within a Literature Circle. After Literature Circles, I follow up with an independent comprehension check of the chapter(s) read.
