Reflection: Routines and Procedures Contrast & Contradiction In Practice - Section 2: Literature Circles: Discussion Questions + Contrast & Contradiction


At this point in the unit, kids are aware of my expectations and groups should be running smoothly. I have on more than one occasion removed kids from their groups for the following reasons:

  1. They were not adding constructively to the group discussion.
  2. They had not completed their designated reading.

I noticed that removal of students works effectively with kids who thrive on positive peer interactions. If you take them away from their peers, they will work hard to stay caught up and change their behavior. Obviously, this consequence doesn't work for kids who are looking to be removed. Honestly, literature circles usually run really smoothly. It is nice to hear the kids converse about novels.
