Literature circles are a wonderful way to engage students in conversations about books. Often, role sheets are used to "train" students in the process. Once students have had practice, they can abandon the role sheets for more open ended journaling type sharing. These role sheets include: Discussion Director, Passage Picker, Crafty Connector, Artful Artist, Literary Luminary, Vocabulary Enricher, and Inquisitive Investigator. ALL sheets clearly describe the job of each role and promote students forming their own questions to make others think.
