Transcript of Literature Circles

Literature Circle Roles: All of the students get a role. They will do their reading and then do their job based on their read. At the end of their literature circles they will switch roles until every student gets to do all the rules. Literature Circle Description: "In literature circles, small groups of students gather together to discuss a piece of literature in depth. The discussion is guided by students' response to what they have read. You may hear talk about events and characters in the book, the author's craft, or personal experiences related to the story. Literature circles provide a way for students to engage in critical thinking and reflection as they read, discuss, and respond to books. Collaboration is at the heart of this approach. Students reshape and add onto their understanding as they construct meaning with other readers. Finally, literature circles guide students to deeper understanding of what they read through structured discussion and extended written and artistic response. " http://www.litcircles.org/Overview/overview.html Literature Circle What's The Point:
This lets your students do something that is student-centered. It is not the usual explaining of the book. It is fun for them, and lets them do their own thing and be creative about it. Literature Circle "Benefits of Literature Circles
• In literature circles, every student can participate in conversation. They are often less intimidated than they might be in a class discussion. The students are also actively constructing their own meanings of a text, rather than waiting for a teacher to "give" them an official meaning.
•By practicing the analytic strategies of each group role, students become cannier, more resourceful readers.
•The different roles in a literature circle show students that historical texts may embrace multiple perspectives, depending on who is telling the story of history. As the students bring these perspectives to the entire group, everyone benefits and learns from one another.
•As students try out various roles and learn ways to talk about a text, they begin to internalize these habits and perspectives; eventually, they can discuss literature productively while guiding the conversation themselves." http://www.learner.org/workshops/tml/workshop5/teaching3.html Literature Circle Negatives:
