literature circles

Each PoP activity has different components that you will include in the assignment. Review the specific steps in the textbook and modules/weeks (labeled with each activity). You do not write lesson plans for these activities; instead, you will create a cluster, concept web, or chart to show what is included in each step of the PoP. Include quality children’s literature, state standards, and address a minimum of 1 of the 6 language arts in the assignment. Submit the assignment as one Microsoft Word document and not multiple documents. See specific instructions for each PoP below.
