Product Description
This activity emphasizes group discussions by keeping the writing tasks short and sweet (like many of your students). Your readers can show off their strengths with this set of tasks through book clubs or Literature Circles with this twist. A complete lesson on how to teach the roles and the expectations for each role is included. Opportunities to modify for students are included and require very little preparation to adapt or increase the difficulty.

Fourteen roles are included with marking guides and opportunities for student self-assessment. Samples of student work are included and provide students with a variety of tasks that appeal to different types of learners. Your budding artists, writers and future politicians will all have the chance to show off their finest skills.

This unit can be reused with multiple grade levels and multiple times over the course of the same school year, by changing the reading materials. Once you teach students the roles, you can use the lesson over and over again throughout the subject areas. Many of the roles can also be used with non-fiction or informational text.

Curricular connections to Common Core ELA and the Alberta Program of Studies English Language Arts are included for grades 4-6.
