This packet includes materials for a four-meeting literature circle focused on Reader-Response and personal interactions with texts. It is the first of a set of six (6) unit packets that make up the skeleton of a senior-level World Literature course. However, the materials and roles may be used at virtually any high school level with minor changes necessary, if any.
Packet contains introductory copy, FAQ, sample calendar, grading rubric for written & oral assessment, planning worksheet for student groups, and role descriptions for four different roles: Reporter, Analyst, Responding Reader, and Quality Controller.
Note: This packet does not include any readings, as they are copyrighted material, so I do not own them or have the rights to distribute them. Roles are intended to be adaptable across a wide range of texts of varying reading levels and genres.
