The thing I always found frustrating with Lit Circle was the fact that there were never any real-world examples given to students. Students need models of how to be part of a discussion and what their role would truly look like. Included in this set are 6 different role cards with accompanying example cards (to photocopy on the back) that model to students the kinds of things they could SAY or DO in that role!
Print these out and put a keyring around them, OR just give each student their individual role card for the day!
The analysis and level of thinking involved with these cards are appropriate for Middle School through High School.
