Product Description
I started using Lit Circles in my classes this year and I enjoy them for the most part.

However, each time my classes read a new novel I like to switch things up so class feels new and fresh.

Sometimes I felt like when each student had one role to complete they were missing out on the value of actually completing the other roles. Even though they were sharing their roles I still felt like DOING is sometimes better for some kids than HEARING.

I created a form that has 7 different lit circle roles that have been shortened.

Word Wizard- Choosing a challenging word to define and use in a sentence

Flair for Figurative Language- Finding figurative language in the novel and describing its literal meaning

Connection Dissection- Connecting events from the chapter to personal life or the real world

Notable Quotable- Choosing a quote to use as a social media status update

Stupendous Summarizer- Using the Step up to Writing method to articulately summarize a chapter

Intelligent Illustrator- Depicting an even in the chapter in an illustration

Terrific Tester- Write two multiple choice questions for the chapter.

I use this sheet in two ways:

1. Each student fill out a full form for every chapter or two

2. Sometimes I give students a second sheet to record the best of their group members answers
