Transcript of Literature Circles
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:
