I'm wondering if anyone has any great resources for literature circles. I feel that I don't know how to do them very well and my students certainly don't know how to do them either. I'd like to teach a unit on how to do literature circles.
It might just be two weeks or a week for the whole class and more weeks for the groups that will do literature circles.
I'd like to teach this to my 3rd and 4th graders who are above or not extremely below level. All the kids who are at a L or higher I believe would benefit from thinking deeply about their reading and discussing it.
