Using Literature Circles to Bring Readers Together

March 29, 2019

Literature circles allow students to collaborate and share their ideas about a shared text of their choosing. This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about literature circles. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how book selections are made, by theme or by genre. Teachers also shared the titles of their favorite books to use for literature circles. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Read through the chat below to find out how to group students for literature circles. You'll get ideas about holding students accountable for their reading. You'll also find ways to assess students during and after reading.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
