PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This document is a series of student worksheets for students working in small groups in book clubs or literature circles. There are four roles. Each sheet has clear directions for the students and a graphic organizer to fill in. It also has a place to fill in the current reading assignment.

The first role is the "discussion director." This student taking on this role is the group leader. They are in charge of coming up with discussion questions and keeping the meeting going.

The second role is the summarizer. This student is in charge of coming up with a series of events from the assigned chapter and explaining why those events are important and what effect they may have on the rest of the book.

The next role is the connector. This student is in charge of jotting down some text-to-self, text-to-text and text-to-text connections made during reading. This graphic organizer has a space for the student to take notes on what the group discussed about these connections during the meeting.

The final role is the vocabulary enricher. This student's job is to jot down words he or she might not know or their group members might be unfamiliar with. They need to find context clues and come up with a possible meaning for the word. They have extra space to change/add to the meaning after they discuss it with their group members.

***These worksheets can be used with any book on any grade level. They were originally created for a 4th grade classroom but have been used in 3rd grade as well.***

The last page has some tips for teachers for using this in your classroom effectively.
