LITERATURE CIRCLES

A Literature Circle is a structure for getting students to talk about a novel with their peers as they read it together. Students are in charge of the discussion and the decision of how many pages will be read before the next discussion. There are between four to six students in each literature circle, and each member rotates one of the following jobs throughout the project: Discussion Director, Literary Luminary, Character Captain, Connector, Artistic Adventurer, and Vocabulary Enricher. The students really love the approach because they are empowered with so much choice and get to "run" the show.
