PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a Literature Circle unit I created for 7th grade Language Arts.

There are 6 roles with two differentiated levels for each role:
Word Wizard
Passage Picker
Clever Connector
Figurative Language Lover
Discussion Director
Sci-Fi Guy (aka Game Changer)

The specific examples within the product are from M. L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time." However, these handouts can be used with any novel.

The CCSS standards are listed as 7th grade standards, but are appropriate for any of the middle grades.

Included in this product:
- A 2-page table with the description of each differentiated role, as well as the Learning Targets and Task for 6 different jobs
-12 graphic organizers (6 at the "A" level, intended for more advanced students and 6 at the "B" level, intended to meet the needs of those who learn differently)
-An organizational chart for small groups/literature circles to keep track of their current role
-A simple point system and recording chart for grading participation in the literature circle activities
