Independent Reading Groups

Work Time

Today you will meet in your Independent Reading Groups for the first time. Everyone in your group will read the same novel.

Establish roles for each person in today’s meeting. For example, if you have four members in your group, you could divide the roles as follows.

  • One person can lead the meeting to make sure all are heard.
  • Another person can keep track of time, saving 3–5 minutes for summarizing at the end of today’s period.
  • A third person should take notes and share them with the whole group and the teacher.
  • A fourth person should help coordinate dates for virtual conversations and deadlines for reading.
