I created these roles specific to non-fiction texts as I found that traditional literature circle roles were too limited to fiction. Roles are specific in skill, but general enough to apply to various texts. My students have applied these roles to texts ranging from Nickle and Dimed to David and Goliath to I am Malala (and many in between).

I've had great success dividing the unit into 4-5 group meetings and having students rotate roles, so they complete 4-5 different roles throughout the unit. These roles have been extremely effective in my AP Language and 11th CP classes. Students' ability to look at language and purpose across a longer text greatly improved, and the range of tasks allows them to look at various elements of a text that inevitably overlap.

Roles require students to analyze conflict, success, American society, the author's philosophical beliefs, and style.
