This resource is a critical thinking adaptation of traditional literature circles. The twist is an added role play for which students assume the lens of a mastermind: a critic, (reader) responder, psychologist, historian, philosopher, or linguist. Each mastermind includes a literary lens-based thinking task to do independently. Once their individual thinking tasks are completed, the masterminds come together for a meeting that requires each member to represent and discuss. To encourage group discussion and participation, each mastermind role includes a unique group requirement.
A meeting of the masterminds can take place for ANY work! It is a perfect activity for a whole class reading selection, or it would work great for group novel studies (each group reads a different book).
An editable rubric is included that you can use to grade each student in his/her mastermind role. This rubric could also be used by each student for self-assessment and to set the expectation.
