Check in with group. Is everybody ready for discussion #1? You should plan for a 20 minute discussion, but can take 30 minutes to finish up/polish work
How To for the discussion: Summarizer is the discussion director, once making sure everyone is ready, set timer, and then read summary, other group members can add to, discuss questions: add more questions, predictions. Literary luminary is next, direct group to your passages (page #), read outloud, share connections, group members should try to add to connections. Illustrator is next, travel tracer. Word Wizard, direct group to your chosen words, don’t just read and be done, reading the words in context helps understanding. Researcher/figurative language, same as above.
