These role sheets are great for literature circles. I created my own with extra space for writing and simple, step-by-step instructions for students. After putting students into their lit circle groups, you will get them to divide their novel up into sections of pages depending on how large the novel is. I usually divide the novels up into 5-6 sections with about 30-50 pages in each section. After students in the group have read the assigned section, they will complete a role sheet and come together as a group to discuss. I tell students that they must alternate which role sheets they complete and each group has to complete one of all the role sheets before doing one twice. These sheets are great for getting discussion going and ensuring all students in the group understand what they are reading. I have used these with grades 7-9 but they could be modified for use with younger students. Enjoy!
