Reflection: Routines and Procedures Literature Circle #2: Exploring Holden's Relationships - Section 2: Exploring Holden: Literature Circle Discussion


As noted above, I ended up out sick today, allowing students the entire period to work on their literature circle. The sub's report noted the students were good, in one class, they were a bit distracted, but not substantial problems. Establishing the routine of these literature circles provided students with the framework they needed to get their work done, and continue planning for their board game project. 

I did sacrifice a second reading check quiz due to the adjustments to the plan today, but as students have a vocabulary quiz tomorrow, I will be able to assess their knowledge of the story as well.
