This Literature Circle Job Kit works wonderfully with almost any book that you choose to use for literature circles. Each job focuses on a target reading strategy, and involves students in using the text that they have read to back up their ideas.
Jobs included in this kit are
1. The Summarizer
2. The Character Analyzer
3. The Connector
4. The Visualizer
5. The Word Detective
6. The Event Coordinator
You can choose which jobs you would like to use during your book studies, as the size of your groups may be smaller, or the skills you want to focus on may not include each one in this kit.
I would suggest having a folder for each student where they keep their job sheets. It is up to you how you wish for them to rotate jobs; you can rotate each time they meet, or keep the same job for 2 or 3 consecutive sessions. It is important, however, that each student gets to experience each job so they can practice those reading skills.
If your students are unfamiliar with literature circles, or this is something that you are new to, you may wish to teach each job separately, having each student complete the same job whole group. Once the jobs are taught, then you can separate into groups.
