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.

I'm a K-5 SLMC who see many applications for this resource.
*Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content
* Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added
*Strengths: Very handy chart for quick reference. Could be printed out with just one question on a card and handed out students for small group, or independent work
*Opportunities: Not really a lesson, but a great strategy for engaging students in discussion with these questions.

I'm a K-12 SLMC reviewing this resource: Comprehensive question stem activity. Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content. The lesson can easily be a collaboration between SLMC and teachers to implement the ELA standards. Strength: the question stems are divided into categories - type of thinking - question & discussion starter - your question. This activity can be used with any literature piece such a literature circles, book clubs, and Socratic seminars.
