READING CIRCLES ROLE SHEETS
In Reading Circles, each student has their own role. The six roles are usually Discussion Leader, Summarizer, Connector, Word Master,
Passage Person, Culture Collector. These role sheets will help you prepare for your Reading Circle discussions in the classroom.

Discussion Leader
STORY: ___________________________________________________________________________________________
N A M E : ___________________________________________________________________________________________
The Discussion Leaders job is to . . .

read the story twice, and prepare at least five general questions about it.
ask one or two questions to start the Reading Circle discussion.
make sure that everyone has a chance to speak and joins in the discussion.
call on each member to present their prepared role information.
guide the discussion and keep it going.
Usually the best discussion questions come from your own thoughts, feelings, and questions as
you read. (What surprised you, made you smile, made you feel sad?) Write down your questions
as soon as you have finished reading. It is best to use your own questions, but you can also use
some of the ideas at the bottom of this page.

Summarizer
STORY: ___________________________________________________________________________________________
N A M E : ___________________________________________________________________________________________
S
The Summarizers job is to . . .

read the story and make notes about the characters, events, and ideas.
find the key points that everyone must know to understand and remember the story.
retell the story in a short summary (one or two minutes) in your own words.
talk about your summary to the group, using your writing to help you.
Your reading circle will find your summary very useful, because it will help to remind them of
the plot and the characters in the story. You may need to read the story more than once to
make a good summary, and you may need to repeat it to the group a second time.

Connector
STORY: ___________________________________________________________________________________________
N A M E : ___________________________________________________________________________________________
C
The Connectors job is to . . .

read the story twice, and look for connections between the story and the world outside.
make notes about at least two possible connections to your own experiences, or to the
experiences of friends and family, or to real-life events.
tell the group about the connections and ask for their comments or questions.
ask the group if they can think of any connections themselves.
These questions will help you think about connections while you are reading.
Events: Has anything similar ever happened to you, or to someone you know? Does anything in
the story remind you of events in the real world? For example, events you have read about in
newspapers, or heard about on television news programmes.
Characters: Do any of them remind you of people you know? How? Why? Have you ever had the
same thoughts or feelings as these characters have? Do you know anybody who thinks, feels,
behaves like that?

Culture Collector

The Culture Collectors job is to . . .

read the story, and look for both differences and similarities between your own culture and
the culture found in the story.
make notes about two or three passages that show these cultural points.
read each passage to the group, or ask another group member to read it.
ask the group some questions about these, and any other cultural points in the story.
Here are some questions to help you think about cultural differences.
Theme: What is the theme of this story (for example, getting married, meeting a ghost, murder,
unhappy children)? Is this an important theme in your own culture? Do people think about this
theme in the same way, or differently?
People: Do characters in this story say or do things that people never say or do in your
culture? Do they say or do some things that everybody in the world says or does?
