Reading roles are critical for implementing literature circles or small-group novel studies. The following six roles were based on the research of C.R. Whittaker [Whittaker, C.R., (2012). Integrating Literature Circles Into a Cotaught Inclusive Classroom. Intervention in School and Clinic. 47(4), 214-223]. Copy, cut, and laminate them so that students have a visible reference for their reading roles during each literature discussion.
