Product Description

Your students can use this product with any novel any time of year. 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.

This product includes:

  • instructions to set up book clubs or reading groups
  • lesson plans on how to teach the various "roles" or each activity with modifications for differentiation
  • student agreements
  • 14 different student pages (one for each role)
  • photographs of completed pages
  • student reflection and assessment pages
  • rubric for assessment of all student work
  • outlines the connections with the Alberta Program of Studies for Grades 4-6
  • outlines the connections with the CCSS for Language Arts

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.

This is a staple in our Language Arts curriculum.
