“Mini Literature Circles”
Enrichment Activity #5: Group Literary Analysis
A literature circle is the student equivalent of a book club, but designed with greater structure,
expectation and rigor. The purpose is to encourage thoughtful discussion and a love of reading
in young people. Students will join together in groups of FOUR (no more, no less) and complete
various roles and activities to share with one another.
What are Literature Circles?
1. Literature Circles are student-centered reading groups guided primarily by student insights and
questions.
2. Students form small, temporary groups for discussion and other activities intended to demonstrate
student independence, responsibility, and ownership.
3. Groups meet on a regular, predictable schedule to discuss their reading.
4. Students use written or drawn notes to guide both their reading and discussion.
5. Group meetings should be open, natural conversations about the reading, so personal connections
and open-ended questions are welcome.
6. Students will perform a variety of roles, experiencing various perspectives on a reading.
7. The teacher serves as a facilitator, NOT instructor.
8. Literature Circles ARE NOT unstructured, uncontrolled "talk time" without accountability.
9. Each student will perform a variety of roles within the circle.
10. See the attached documents for more information.
Literature Circle Roles:
Literature Circle Requirements:
1. Questioner: This person develops a set of
questions to share with the group, then
records and leads discussion based on
student responses.
1. Students report to Mr. Davis with your
group to receive your Literature Circle
packets.
2. Summarizer: This person summarizes the
material read for group discussion.
2. Students must complete EACH of the
roles in their Literature Circle Packets
over the assigned reading section.
3. Linguist: This person locates, defines,
