Reading, Sharing and Responding to Literature
Applying the Methods of Literature Circles to a Variety of Reading Materials

This workshop will model reading methods for students that will help them to discuss the books and materials they read with each other in small groups and in whole class settings.

By applying the methods of Lit Circles to these reading materials, students will think deeper, gain greater comprehension of reading materials and be given the opportunity to explore a variety of meanings and interpretations of the texts they read.

As a companion to reading and discussion, we will also model a variety of standard based opportunities for students to respond to what they read through writing and publishing opportunities.
