I use this document to create clipboards for literature circles in my classroom. There are 6 literature circle jobs included. Each job includes 2 pages. I place the first page on the back of a clipboard and the second page I copy and put on the clipboard. I also attach a colorful pencil to each clipboard. During literature circle time each student in a group has a clipboard with their job description. They read and then complete their job. During our next session the discussion director leads the group in discussion and calls on each member to share their job. Finally, a new section of reading is assigned.
I've found that even my 3rd graders become very independent with literature circles. It's a nice compliment to guided reading. My students love, love, love getting out the literature circle clipboards!
