Product Description
Literature circles are not a new invention, but they can be way to get students to engage with one another and with a text that is relatively easy on the teacher and fairly impactful for students. We all know the same old, tired lit circle roles, so I tried to create a few that were different and/or put my own spin on some classic roles. Add these to your normal repertoire.

"Tete-a-tete Tweeter"- Include a technology component in a low-tech way by having students create Twitter handles for characters in the book then create a twitter conversation between them.

"Wordsmith"- This is a classic role, I just revamped the presentation to include a few more details about each word entered and to focus more on the word than on where it was found in the text.

"Evaluator"- This works well to have students practice with giving evidence to back up their opinions by asking them about the characters in a work.

"Mood Minder"- Students often have a hard time with Mood and Tone, and this role has them practice by charting their mood as they read.
