A Literature Circle is a group of students reading the same novel, and producing a common goal or projects through cooperative learning. The authors give specific guidelines and procedures to help you establish, administer, and evaluate a successful reading program. Each unit includes a summary of a novel, a reproducible vocabulary list, and a variety of group activities that inspire collaboration, assumption of responsibility, critical thinking, and thoughtful use of the story. Grades 3-8.
In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text.
