Product Description
I used this 5 day discussion sheet to keep students talking about main ideas, details, text structures, text features, and analyzing author's purpose--all things we've been talking about in minilessons.

Rather than do a full-blown book club, I let students work in heterogeneous groups (table groups were easiest) so they could glean information from all types of thinkers and reading levels.

Students used our Scholastic subscriptions (TFK or Storyworks) for this week's discussions so it could be done in 15-20 minutes during reading workshop (or as a center); however, any nonfiction text could be use.

This activity covers three 4th grade nonfiction standards and incorporates depth of knowledge into the activities.
