This packet includes materials for a four-meeting literature circle focused on gender and examining texts through gender-based lenses and notions. It is the third in 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: Gender Defender, Casting Director, Role Reverser, and Reporter roles.
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.
