Directions
  • In order to make an educated decision about which book you are going to read for our Lit Circles Unit, you will read book reviews about each of the books.
  • Go through each slide and click on the links to read reviews on each book.
  • Once you have researched each book, you will make a first and second choice and give the rationale for your selection.  Keep in mind that other students will likely want to read the same book, so the more persuasive you are, the more likely you will get to read the book of your choosing.

1/13/14 New Lit Circle Member Interviews

Practice taking notes on your Notetaker/Reflection Sheet

Choose ONE question from the list to ask all the members of your group. Discussion director, remember SLWM.

If you could change one thing about your mother’s life, what would it be and why?

If you could have one person from history, dead or alive, for dinner, who would it be and why?

If you could ensure that your child (someday) has one experience that you have had yourself, which one would it be and why?

What is/was your favorite fairy tale or fable as a child? Why?

Who is the most caring person you’ve every known? Give an example of something caring they’ve done for you or someone else.

If you could only exchange text messages with one person on the planet for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?

How to Prep Carefully for discussions

Historian/Cartographer Example

Lit Circle #2

Debriefing as a class

HW: Reading ADBG (as determined by group)

Find 2 passages from your reading thus far that invoke powerful clear imagery in your mind. You will need them for class on the block day!

1 14 13 page 1 linden hills historian cartographer

A fictional locale somewhere in the US.

1/14/13 Page 1 Linden Hills Historian/Cartographer

The USPO determines zip codes and is required to deliver mail. It has input as to the “legal” zoning of land.

Census takers determine demographics across the US every 10 years for the US government.

Land surveyors measure the distance between natural or man-made features, identify the boundaries between different pieces of land, and/or map the natural or man-made features found in a particular area.

The opening sets the scene literally in describing the landscape as well as figuratively by mention of a dispute. The dispute reflects the author’s intent to illustrate the value of this property to the community. The contracting of borders over the years also adds to the sense that many people are vying for a place in LH.

1 14 13 roles clarification activity

1/14/13 Roles Clarification Activity

Take out the Literature Circles Roles Handout from last week.

You will each be given the first page of the one of the novels you are about to start reading.

As you read silently, put on the hat of your new role & consider the responsibilities and questions provided on the role descriptor handout.

Read this quietly using talk to the text strategies to make meaning of the text. Refer to the questions on the Roles Descriptor as well as using your finely honed reading skills.

Discuss as a group

As you read, what questions came up for you about what you are supposed to do as your role?

If you were preparing for your discussion on just this piece of text, what steps would you take to prepare effectively?

What discussion questions/information would be important for the group to have?

What do other members of your group want or need that you may have not considered?
