border.JPGLiterature Circles Package.doc - This is great for children to use when they are all reading a different book and want to discuss it. Also good when doing the same book and introducing some of the roles.

There are a lot of different roles that people use and different roles suit different books. These are some useful links to what others have to say about roles they have used and how they have introduced them. All well worth reading, some refer to the same things, but you will definitely find something useful here.
