Literture Circles – A Practice Run
Today, we had a practice run of literature circles.
After reading the story, “A Mother in Manville” which yo can access at – http://www.classzone.com/eservices/ -, the class did a practice run of a literature circle.
Each block had its own issues with its first practice try at it.
Most of the day, the biggest issue was that groups were getting too loud.
Also, there was some confusion about how to actually do some of the jobs/roles. Review your notes about the different jobs each day before you begin reading a section. Make sure you know what your responsibility is to the group. Know your job description. Please refer to the page devoted to job descriptions.
