You must read the texts for the book circle discussion and do your tasks (see list below). You have to also have to learn the words to each text. Those words are homework for next week.
Prepare six questions, one for each of The Six Thinking Hats. Always set the scene (summarize and say page number) before you write your question. At the group meeting, you will lead the discussion. Always address students by name and thank them when they have presented their activity. Start by always asking the summarizer to summarize today’s reading. Next it is your turn to ask your six questions to the group.
Prepare a short summary of today’s reading. Your group discussion will start with your summary that covers the key events and highlights of today’s reading assignment.
Choose a character and list some character traits that the person has shown in today’s reading. Give the page numbers and evidence from your reading which will support your choices.
Find connections between the text and the world outside. Connect the readings to your own life, things you have seen, heard or experienced. Set the scene in the book you are referring to by summarizing it briefly. Then tell the others what this reminds you of. Finally, point out similarities and differences.
