Literature Circles are a great way to get different students reading different books - this is especially helpful for differentiation and being sure to meet the needs of all students. In my document, I have done all the hard work for you! All the "roles and responsibilities" of literature circles are created and spelled out for teachers and students in an easy and simple manner. The roles include discussion director, passage picker, word wizard, and character sketcher. It also includes a template for students to use in each role.
This document is specific to Alice in Wonderland and contains an author biography, roles sheet, and schedule. Enjoy!
