Literature circles have been a staple in elementary classrooms forever, and they are a great way to introduce your world language students to a more independent way of reading novels in class. You can do literature circles at any level, but personally I find they work best in level 3 or 4, or in level 2 if you have students that are able to work well and read independently.
This resource allows you to assign students to read semi-independently and process a novel in a small-group. It is a change of pace that the teacher and students will love!
Several sets of 4-6 readers each (I recommend Fluency Matters!), at a variety of levels but not too far out of the reach of any student in the class. It is totally ok to have some “easy” reads in the mix.
I have made up this packet for my Spanish classes with descriptions of each job, a project checklist, rubric, cover sheet for each group, and job sheet for each individual job. All documents are included in both Spanish and English, so this packet could be used by teachers of languages other than Spanish!
Additionally, I have revised this product and I am including 2 past versions as well in case you like one design better than another!
