This was originally designed as a research project when I was in college. I implemented these literature groups in my 4th grade reading class. They were so successful, and students really enjoyed reading for deeper meaning. I have since used this in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This product includes role cards (or task cards) for each student in the group, detailed description of ways to implement in your classroom, and a daily schedule to post in your classroom to keep your students on track. There are 7 total roles, and you can choose to use all or the ones that best suit your students.
