Reflection: Routines and Procedures Literature Circle #4: Holden On His Family - Section 2: Literature Circle and Board Game Work Period


As yesterday was the fourth independent work day for students, today is the fourth Literature Circle discussion students are to have. They began loudly, as they often do, but settled quickly into discussing the novel and Holden's portrayal of the story. I was particularly impressed with the illustrators from this section, they did a strong job creating visual representations of the events in the story. As with yesterday, either because of the established routine or because it's a Tuesday, students settled into work quickly and efficiently.
