Literature Circle Responses

 

Discussion Leader

As the DISCUSSION LEADER, you will respond to the reading with questions that are designed to get people thinking. It's fine if you don't  know the answers to these questions. There should be no simple or single answers to these questions.

In your group's lit. circle discussion, your job is to keep the discussion going. This is where your questions will come in handy. They will help you ensure that your group's discussion is focused and in-depth.  

 

Illustrator

 

As the ILLUSTRATOR,  you will respond to the reading with sketches (or clip-art or digital images). In your response, you will focus on a significant event or a sequence of significant events in the reading. You will add depth and clarity to your illustrations with brief annotations or descriptions of the events you depict.

You will also bring a thinking question to your group's lit. circle discussion.

 

  

Connector

 

As the CONNECTOR, you will respond to the reading by identifying a text connection ( “text to world” or “text to text” or “text to self” )you made as you completed the reading. Then you will describe this connection in detail and explore the ways this connection offers opportunities for responding to the reading with insight and depth.

You will also bring a thinking question to your group's lit. circle discussion.

  

Line Lighter

As the LINE LIGHTER, you will respond to the reading by identifying three passages from the reading that are either significant or unclear. You will also offer an explanation which details your reason(s) for selecting each passage.

Lastly, you will bring a thinking question to your group's lit. circle discussion.
