When students think through and discuss books together, they gain more content knowledge and hone their critical thinking and collaboration skills. In this custom class, which can be delivered as a custom webinar or on-site workshop, you’ll learn how to incorporate the discussion cards and activities in Raz-Plus Literature Circles—one of the resources that accompany leveled books—to engage your students and facilitate the process of collaboration and critical thinking.
In this custom class, learn how to:
- Introduce literature circles with model lessons
- Understand the philosophy and pedagogical implications of literature circles
- Customize literature circles to any text using journals and a variety of student roles
- Plan first steps toward implementing literature circles into a balanced literacy curriculum
