- Literature Circle Roles (Discussion Director, Summarizer, Word Player, Passage Selector, Investigator, and Illustrator)
- 5-week planning template for literature circles
- Discussion Director Notes
- Literature Circle Assessment
I would recommend using a short story to try out all the roles as a class before attempting the more advanced structure of small discussion groups. I would also give the class a week’s reading time before you start “week one” of the schedule.
