How do literacy circles influence the enjoyment, engagement, and achievement of young readers?
Many students view reading as a chore. Often the books are teacher chosen and the student is forced to answer an endless amount of comprehension questions. This study, conducted at a magnet language immersion school in southern California, examines what happens in a third grade classroom when students work in literature circles. Students worked in student-run groups to discuss books on a weekly basis.
