This is a zip file of over 25 forms and a ppt slide show pertaining to Literature Circles. The material is divided into four separate folders:
1. PPT and Accompanying Papers… this folder contains a power point slideshow that introduces the six main literature circle jobs as outlined by Harvey Daniels (literature circle creator/author); a summary report that groups can fill-out after a session holding them accountable for their work; cooperative evaluation assessment form to be used by the teacher when assessing individual circle discussions; group self-evaluation form to be used by the student groups on a regular basis.
2. Bookmarks… set of six (one per job) with three on a sheet and one with the suggested order of jobs. These can be printed on colored card stock and used as homework reminders.
3. Frog Theme… set of business card templates (a cover, six job cards, one order of jobs card) for creating mini-job booklets for students to use as a reference tool during circle time and while doing individual work; cooperative evaluation sheet for teacher assessment; group self-evaluation sheet for student use; job chart for recording who has what job on a given day
4. Various Forms… job description page (student reference), pencil toppers (one per job to print, cut apart and attach to the eraser end of a student’s pencil, serves as a handy reminder), planning guide for student group use, foldable (individual student assignment), blank flip flap chart (individual student assignment)
