I hope this finds everyone safe and healthy. All this still seems surreal and still feels weird teaching from a distance. Last week you chose a novel and hopefully took a look at who else is in your group. You will have to connect with these students to determine your reading schedule and roles.
*If you have not yet chosen a novel, you need to do so immediately. Your first group discussion will be this week and participation is necessary.
*Tuesday Class Meet: please join me on Tuesday May 12th at 9:30am for a class meeting. At this point you can ask/clarify any questions you may have regarding literature circles which we will be starting on Thursday May 14th.
*Thursday Class Meet: The following Book Literature Circles will take place on Thursday May 14th. Please join your group (which is your novel choice) at the time below:
*The Help: 9:15am
*To Kill a Mockingbird Group 1: 9:30
*To Kill a Mockingbird Group 2: 9:45
The Members of your group are below. My hope is that on Tuesday’s meeting you can connect to figure out each other’s roles for Thursday’s discussion if you have not yet done so…your group should also have established a reading schedule hopefully by Tuesday…
