I have a total of 27 years teaching experience . After I received my M.Ed. from the University of Florida (hence the name "HappyEdugator"), I began teaching in elementary school, where I taught pull-out remedial classes for grades 2-5 and a section of K-1. Then I taught Pre-K for 5 years, before I went up to Middle School, where I have been in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Last year, I went back to 1st grade in a private setting. I have traveled worldwide and am also fluent in Spanish.
Literature Circle Jobs - Cooperative Learning Assignments. Literature Circles made easy with assigned jobs. Research shows that children working in cooperative learning groups should have assigned roles and guidelines in order to be highly productive. These printable worksheets will help you organize your groups into 4 distinct roles: The Word Finder, The Discussion Director, The Passage Picker/Summarizer, and the Connector. I have also included an Expectation Grid for all group members to work on together
