Put your students in charge of learning! This packet guides students to come up with their own discussion questions and activities to go along with any novel. With you as a facilitator only, students choose jobs to complete, determine their own reading schedule, and discover the inner workings for themselves of whatever novel they are reading.
This packet includes a description of a literature circle and six roles or "jobs" for students to complete as they read. Roles include the summarizer, discussion leader, activity leader, literary luminary, connector, and illustrator. It also includes a blank reading schedule for students to complete, a handout that corresponds with each role, and a scoring rubric.
This activity can easily be adapted for various group sizes.
