Have your students work in collaborative groups to answer questions and solve problems in the areas of reading and math. Each member of the team has a specific role to encourage responsibility and active participation (see preview for more detail):

1. The READER reads the question.

2. The CLARIFIER helps the group understand what the question is asking.

3. The DIRECTOR helps make a plan for answering the question (i.e., "Let's look back in paragraph 3")

4. Everyone writes down their answer to the question independently.

5. The MONITOR checks to make sure that everyone has a correct answer.

It is everyone's job in the group to "make sure that everyone works together respectfully as a team and actively participates."

This resource includes posters and job description cards for BOTH reading and math. The posters are available in color and black & white. The posters display each role and the order in which students take turns doing their jobs. The job description cards (in color and B&W) are to be cut out and passed out to individual students to refer to.

This activity meets several Speaking and Listening Common Core standards, as it encourages students to "participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners." The individual roles encourage each member of the team to contribute ideas.

If you would like to use the posters and cards for only reading or only math, they are also available for individual purchase:

Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
Pose and respond to specific questions with elaboration and detail by making comments that contribute to the topic, text, or issue under discussion.
Follow rules for collegial discussions, set specific goals and deadlines, and define individual roles as needed.
Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence on the topic, text, or issue to probe and reflect on ideas under discussion.
