Description

Overview:
Literature circles are a way to engage students in reading by selecting texts to read and discuss with peers. Instead of traditional literature circle roles, use question stems as a way to spark discussion. These question stems build in the complexity of thinking required. Reflection questions are included for debriefing after the small group discussion.

As a teacher who facilitates literature circles, question stems and self-evaluation forms like this can be invaluable when it comes to preparing students for productive discussion. Learning objectives and teacher assessment strategies are clearly indicated. This resource is easy to use and motivating, giving students a combination of choice and structure in terms of the questions they ask the group. I wonder how technology could be incorporated into this resource to allow students to record their discussion or share their questions and answers with each other.
