DIRECTIONS FOR LITERATURE CIRCLES

1.  Refer to your group's job chart to see when your different roles occur.

2.  You will meet every Tuesday and Friday.  Be sure that you have your role assign-

     ment complete BEFORE each meeting.  Each group has a folder to keep role sheets

    organized.  Mrs. Mitchell will check the folder's contents after each meeting.

3.  If you know you are going to be absent on a meeting day, fill out your role sheet

     ahead of time and put it in your group's folder.

4.  On the first meeting day, your group will fill in the "Meeting Assignment" sheet. 

     This will organize your reading selections.  If your group needs to modify this

     page, that is acceptable. 

5.  You will have a total of 8 meeting days.  Keep this in mind when you are filling out

     your "Meeting Assignment" sheet.

6.  After your last meeting, your group will start the evaluation project.
