* Reading Circles are small groups of students who meet in the classroom to talk about a story they are reading in English. The story must be written in language that is below their level so it is enjoyable to read. A good story is at the heart of every Reading Circle.
*Each student is given a different role in the discussion: Discussion Leader, Summarizer, Culture Collector, Word Master, etc. Students must read the story and complete their Role Sheet in preparation for the discussion.
*Reading Circles encourage students to think more, read more ? and talk more!
