PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Literature Circles are a great way for students to be independent learners as well as work cooperatively in a group. Students are grouped based upon their reading level. Each group is assigned a "just right" book. For each text selection/chapter, students are assigned a job to complete after they are finished reading. These jobs include: discussion leader, star summarizer, word detective, creative connector, and incredible illustrator. After students finish their jobs they come together to have a discussion regarding the text. Using their completed jobs they begin to have an in-depth discussion about the assigned text. Students also have the opportunity to self-evaluate their effort/completeness of their job as well as how they participated in the group discussions.
