After students have learned the basics of text structure, build independence and engagement with these literature circle materials. You'll find a student directions page, preparation page, roles sheets, open-ended response page, rubrics, and a seven-page teaching guide. These materials are designed to help students think about citing text evidence, looking at visuals, and supporting their thinking about a text.
Also included are three previously published texts to get you started--"Whoopie Wars", from Chronological Order texts, "When Problems Attack" and "Schoolhouse Problems and Solutions", both from Problem and Solution texts.
