Using the Literature Circle Role Sheets with EFL Students

Finally, a look at the magic formula for using literature circles with EFL students.

First, as we have seen from the definition, literature circles are small reading groups that meet in the classroom to discuss texts. These groups should be student-directed, but at the same time, our students need some tools in order to have interesting, fun discussions about the stories that they"ve read. These tools come in the form of the Role Sheets that students use when meeting in their groups. There are five basic roles for EFL literature circle groups and one additional role for higher-level groups which can be introduced later in the term. Please click on the title of each role to view the Role Sheet as a pdf file. These Role Sheets are also available as pdf files if you simply follow the links below.
