Product Description
How I use this resource: I use this similarly to the way I do literature circles. This product is best used with short readings or excerpts. I used to do this once a week with a different current event/ non-fiction article. This year I will be incorporating it into my book unit for I Am Malala. This will be done with purposeful excerpts.
-Print all role cards and laminate—I create CR Ziploc bags for each group
-print individual packets for each student
Directions: (60 minute lesson)
5 min: Assign roles and pass out role cards
-Word Watcher
2 min: Each student individually makes a prediction; call on a few students to share out.
15-30 min (depending on reading size): Students in groups take turns reading paragraph by paragraph out loud. In my class it is important that every student reads aloud.
10 min (approx..): Students work individually to complete their role using the fix-up strategies on the back of the role cards.
20 min: Students each take turns sharing out their role to their groups and fill in their individual sheets.
*As a teacher I walk around during all the group work time with a thin expo and write comments on their role cards so each student is held accountable and is receiving immediate feedback.
