PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Facilitating discussion circles in your classroom is a great strategy to get students cooperatively involved in discussing the literature they read and it provides a little something for everyone.

This is a student centered strategy involving both independent and cooperative work. Students select or are assigned a unique role (of 8) within small groups. Each role requires students to independently read a teacher assigned selection and prepare to discuss the reading within their group using the assignment sheet associated with their role. These roles are suited for multiple skill levels, interests, and abilities and may be assigned by the teacher or chosen by the students and rotated as frequently as needed.

This packet includes 8 roles; pick and choose which ones work best for you and your students. Also included is an assignment page for groups and one for individuals. These pages can be used in group discussion circle folders or in students’ literature journals.

You can use this strategy…
*during a whole class novel unit
*for classroom “book clubs”
*to assign reading homework

I suggest using this packet in grades 3-6.

Roles Included:
*Discussion Director
*Passage Picker
*Artful Artist
*Commenting Critic
*Summary Supplier
*Verbal Vocabulist
*Creative Connector
*Systematic Story Mapper
