This activity for Truman Capote's In Cold Blood is based on the Literature Circles concept. The student instructions explain the roles of group leader, discussion director, stanza master, connector, and summarizer/illustrator. The instructions also have a fill-schedule for meetings and list of what occurs in the meeting. Also in the file are four different theme strand worksheets that the circles track during their study of the novel. A group record sheet for student self-evaluation is also included.
