The story: I had to break my English class into Literature Circles this year, and I was given a few role sheets, but I thought the roles themselves were very basic and boring.
And thus, this resource was born!
This resource introduces 8 new roles (and one old favorite) to the Literature Circle Mix! It also includes a sheet to "sign in" and "sign out" Literature Circle books, a Project, Project planning sheets, and Project check-ins! Everything you need to spice up your literature circles is included!
The roles: Social Media Manager (summarizing), Audio Engineer (works with tone), the Marketing Manager, the Script Doctor, the Cheater, the Fashion Coordinator, the Overzealous Editor, and the Discussion Director.
Personally, I copied out several copies of each role, so that I can continue to keep students individually accountable during the Literature Circles. Because I kept reusing them, I found that I needed as many roles as I could to keep things fresh.
