The first time that I run Text Clubs in my classroom I typically have the entire class working through the same texts at their own pace. This way I can model whole group, in order for students to really learn their roles in their groups. If you don’t have a class set, no worries,
that’s just what works best for me.

I prefer 5 students per group, but I will have groups of 4 and have students rotate and have double duty one meeting per week. How you manage your groups will depend on how often students will get the chance to come together. If they don’t meet everyday, then have the reading assignments longer in order to move through the text at a manageable pace. Depending on the types of text, a chapter per day may be more manageable.

Student are excited to hold up their role props to lead their part of the text discussion. The HIPSTER clipart by Kate Hadfield is perfect
to help engage the reluctant members of a group. Make sure each student get the chance to share their work they completed and most importantly guide them how to have deep and meaningful conversations about their
text. I have found this works best when we MODEL-MODEL-MODEL and then MODEL a bit more to have the most successful Text Clubs possible!

Suggestion how to do with props: (always laminate!!!!!)
Glasses/Mustache/Hat- I use the cute paper straws or popsicle stick
Camera/Type Writer- 2 hole punches and a string to wear around the neck.
Text Club Routine- One per group
Job descriptions- One of
each per group.
