Reflection: Student Ownership Tough Questions & Group Discussions - Section 4: Finish Novels

 

And this, in short, is why I do literature circles. Student Conversation (overheard):

Student A: Psssssssssssssssst, what page are you on?

Student B: Huh?

A: Are you on 206 yet?

B: No... close.

A: When you get to 206, I need to talk to you, it's sad.

A real bond is forged between people who share the experience of reading a great book.
