  1. 1. Literature  Circle  Roles: Literary  Luminary   Your  job…is  to  select  at  least  3  passages  from  the  section  you  read.    You  can  choose  to  read  a   passage  because  of  humor,  awesome  action,  great  dialogue  (talking),  its  importance  to  the  story,   the  way  it  rolls  off  your  tongue  when  you  read  it,  or  for  any  reason  you  want.    The  important   thing  is  that  you  read  it  to  the  group  and  explain  why  you  chose  this  passage.    Remember:   1) As  you  read  put  sticky  notes  in  the  pages  where  you  find  a  good  passage.    Write  the  first  few  words  and  last  few  words   of  the  passage  on  the  sticky  to  help  you  remember  what  you  picked.   2) When  you  are  done  reading  your  section,   copy  the  passages  onto  the  back  or  a   !  Put  the  page  and  paragraph  numbers  in  front  of  the  passages.       separate  paper  and  staple  it.   !!  Put  quotation  marks  around  the  passage.   Don’t  forget!!!→   !!!  Be  sure  to  leave  room  to  explain  why  you  chose  this  passage.   3) Explain  why  you  chose  this  passage.     Writing  “because  it  was  cool”  is  not  good  enough.    Tell  exactly  what  you  like  about  it,  how  it  makes  you  feel,  what  it   reminds  you  of,  etc.   4) Practice  reading  each  one  aloud  until  you  can  read  it  with  NO  MISTAKES  using  an  entertaining  expression.    Pretend   like  you  are  a  teacher  reading  to  your  class.    You  are  giving  a  performance,  so  be  sure  to  rehearse  beforehand!!!  Example:   Pg 23/Para. 3 “Alex grabbed hold of what was left of the backseat. Ahead of him he could see a single triangle oflight, shrinking faster and faster. He could feel the weight of the two walls pressing down on him. The car was nolonger a car but the fist of some hideous monster snatching at the insect that Alex had become.”I  chose  this  passage  because  it  had  good  description.    It  made  me  feel  like  I  was  in  the  car  getting  compacted  with  Alex.  I  especially  liked  the  part  about  him  being  an  insect  inside  of  a  fist.    I  could  really  visualize  Alex  inside  the  car  getting  squished.  When  you  meet….   1) Tell  your  group  the  page  and  paragraph  numbers  and  wait  for  them  to  find  the  passage.   2) Read  your  passage  with  feeling!   3) Read  what  you  wrote  about  why  you  chose  the  passage.   4) Take  a  comment  from  one  member  of  the  group  or  ask  questions  about  your  quote.   5) Read  your  second  passage  following  steps  1-­‐4  above.   6) The  group  will  grade  you  on  the  rubric       4   3   2   1   Reads with expression; Reading is good; no Reading is OK; a Reading is not very comfortable and big mistakes.
