These are instructions I give to students when we are going to use group literature circles to discuss a piece of assigned reading. This version of Literature Circles assigned each group member (groups of 4) a specific role that he or she must prepare prior to the Literature Circle meeting. This activity is an entirely student-based small-group discussion about any piece of reading.
The roles described in these instructions are as follows:
This activity should take about 50 minutes, but it can be shortened if necessary.
This product is only the instructions. The templates for each role and example of how each role should be done are sold separately.
