Print and cut out this assortment of cards from Spark Creativity, then pass them out secretly to some or all of your students before an ELA discussion. Students will take on roles such as "Clarifier," "Textual Guru," and "21st Century Representative." Watch as the discussion is enriched as students rapidly learn there are new ways to participate. Collect the cards and pass them out again on another day for a brand new discussion experience.
3 Pages of Framed Cards (4 on each page)

I have adapted these discussion role cards for several specific novels, including 1984, Into the Wild (in the Into the Wild Unit Activities Pack), and The Hunger Games, in an effort to cater to teachers who like products more specifically tailored to the novels they are teaching. Please do not accidentally buy a very similar product twice!
