If You Met A Character From Your Book in Real Life...

This could be an interesting discussion!  You're walking along the road and SUDDENLY!! - there, in front of you is a character from the Literature Circles book you're reading at the moment!!  You can't believe your eyes!

What would you say to that character?  What questions would you ask him / her / it about their life and the story you're reading?  How would they respond?

I'm REALLY looking forward to reading your thoughts on this one!!!

Kicking off the Discussion for the New Year

You've just chosen your new Literature Circle books.

How did you choose your book?  What metacognitive thinking went on - the thinking around how you thought about choosing the book.  What thinking did you need to do?

Tell me all about it.
