Use these printables as literature circle roles for students to have collaborative learning while discussing a novel, story, short story or poem. I have added extra roles such as vocabulator and passage master for larger classes. I adapted these roles to fit any classroom and grade level.
I have also included a QAR bookmark card for the role of discussion director. Question-Answer-Response is a strategy to use for the director to ask effective and comprehensive questions for the group members in the circle. They can use the QAR card as a question prompt when writing the questions.
I teach each role individually per day and practice them over a time span of about 2 weeks.
