As  you  can  imagine  the  talking  may  get  out  of  hand,  so  its  your  responsibility  to  keep  it  respectful  and  under  control.  Be  encouraging,  and  supportive  of  those  that  dont  talk  very  much.  Quiet  people  often  have  something  very  good  to  say.    Make  sure:  -­‐no  one  is  rude  to  any  one  else  -­‐people  take  turns  -­‐people  keep  their  voices  down  (the  rest  of  the  class  will  be  working)  -­‐that  EVERYONE  talks  and  they  can’t  just  say  “I  agree  with  ________”  They  need  to  give  a  reason  or  two    Example:  Q: Why do you think Old Man Hammer was so grumpy?  I  think  that  it  might  be  because  his  wife  died  and  he  is  all  alone  all  of  the  time.    He  is  probably  jealous  of  everyone  who  is  happy.    Here  are  some  sample  question  starters:   1) How  did  you  feel  about…?   2) If  you  were  (name  of  character)  what  would  you  have  done  differently?   3) Why  do  you  think  (name  of  character)  behaved  that  way?   4) What  do  you  think  (name  of  character)  really  meant  when  s/he  said…?   5) What  was  the  most  important  part  of  this  section  and  why?   6) What  do  you  think  will  happen  next?    When  you  meet….   1) Read  your  first  question  to  the  group.   2) Let  everyone  in  the  circle  answer  before  you  answer.    (Remember:  There  is  no  right  or  wrong,  just  opinions.)   3) The  group  will  decide  whether  your  question  is  above  or  below  the  surface.   4) Ask  the  rest  of  the  questions  following  steps  1-­‐3  above.   5) The  group  will  grade  you  on  the  rubric       4   3   2   1   Includes 4 or more Includes 3 open 2 questions; or 2 questions; or open ended questions ended questions questions are not questions are not open ended open ended Politely tries to keep Mostly polite; a little Sometimes polite; Impolite; mostly off- group on task; gets off-task; gets sometimes off-task; task; teacher help teacher if needed teacher if needed gets teacher if needed but not needed gottenStudent Name: ___________________________________ Score I think I deserve: _______Book Title: ____________________________________________________Date: _________________ Pages Read: ___________________ Score I got: _______
