Literature Circles Worksheets

Core Standard

A literature circle is a small group of students that gather together to discuss a work of literature that they have experience with. Usually the group is formed in a circle to be able to best hear each other’s contribution to the group, hence the name. Literature circles take on a variety of different forms that are usually different, in some aspect, from classroom to classroom. This method of learning gives readers a chance to see how the same work can be interpreted many different ways. Many teachers seem to feel that this technique not only helps students grow as stronger readers, but as writers also. This is because it helps students to better understand their audience. Another unforeseen benefit of this type of learning is that they help make students more comfortable in social situations. It helps them learn how to share as well as be patient with others.
