Here is a strategy that allows each student in a group reading the same book to participate constructively. Literature Cirlcles will allow students to work with all reading skills- main idea, vocabulary, making connections to books, community, self, summarizing, oral discussion, prediction, research skills, visualizing, questioning. Started by Harvey Daniels. Just google Literature Circles and you will find a mint of role sheets and management sheets to run your literature circles with extended activities. Great alternative to round robin reading. This strategy allows students to take charge of their learning!
