This product contains 70+ pages of everything you need to set up a structured reading system and to begin using Book Clubs (the new Literature Circles) in your classroom. This is not reading curriculum, but rather it is the framework around which you would deliver your mini-lessons and guided instruction. Use tools in this packet to set-up Book Clubs AND assess the students' comprehension of the texts they read. The Common Core aligned reading responses in the Book Clubs packet can be used with ANY book! Sheets can be printed individually or organized in a booklet (instructions included).
