Directions: This works just like any literature circle would, only it is designed for nonfiction text. Each student receives a colored “role” card. (you may duplicate roles as needed). Each student will also need a copy of the “packet”- the last 5 pages.
Students then meet daily to read their text as a small group, and each student completes his/her job. When finished, students hand in packet portion to the teacher.
