Product Description
This approach to nonfiction literature circles asks students to consider the essential question: "How historically accurate is my book?" each week through research, discussion, and written responses comparing the research to the text.

Each member of the reading club group will need be a leader for one week. During this week they will work closely with other group leaders and the teacher to research issues and events discussed in their book by finding an article to guide discussion for their group. Students are asked to fully prepare for their role as leader by finding an appropriate article or primary source, citing the source, annotating their own copy, and creating high level discussion questions connecting the text to the book before engaging their group during discussion day.

Pros: Students get to choose both their literature circle book AND the resources each week. This increases student interest and allows the teacher spend time assisting in the process, not collecting sources for several books.
