Let me backtrack and give you the layout of how a typical Lit Circle class period runs...
1. Read the assigned chapters. (This could be done in several ways... me read aloud to the class, reading with a partner, or reading independently)
2. Meet with the other students who have the same job as you for the day. (complete job for the day)
3. Meet with your group. ( There are 4 groups going at a time)
4. Come back together as a class and share ideas, questions, and interesting discussions.
This is the first year that I have read this novel with my class and I am just loving all of the connections and life lessons we have discovered so far....
Thinking ahead to next year... does anyone have good examples of biographies, autobiographies, or informational texts? These are my areas I am really lacking in. Also, if you know of any good mysteries or "scary" books I would appreciate you sharing that knowledge my way... Thanks in advance!
Thank goodness its Thursday!!!
