Aren’t you excited? It’s the first day of your new Literature Circles! I’m excited to see where this journey will take you, and to hear all the FABULOUS conversations that will result from your close reading of your book.
I would love you to share your first thoughts with the world, so today’s response will be on your blog, not on Edmodo. After your group has met, please compose a post that includes these things:
1. What is the book that you are reading and discussing (include the author and UNDERLINE the title!)
2. How would you describe the conversation? Pick only ONE WORD and be sure to tell why you chose it. For example, you might say it was LIVELY because everyone was really excited to share (and no, you can’t use that word. It’s mine. 🙂 ).
3. What was something you did to contribute positively to the group? On the other side of the coin, what is something you could do differently next time to make your conversation even better?
4. What are you looking forward to in your next meeting?
As always, be sure to show what you know about what good writers do (use correct mechanics, choose appropriate words, write in paragraphs, think about the audience, etc.)! I should see proof of what you know in your writing, as well as see the answers to my questions! Oh, and use the tags literature circles, reading and fun for your post (plus any others you want to add!).
Can’t wait to hear how it went! 🙂
