  Synced Audio / Slides

How can I motivate my students to read? This question is central for teachers of reading, as it is for most college instructors. In this interactive workshop, the presenters will demonstrate how literature/reading circles can promote student engagement with reading and increase their ability to analyze and discuss texts in a meaningful manner. Literature circles require that students participate in a learner-centered collaborative group process in which they share and compare their insights and questions. The presenters will show how to adapt literature circles for different purposes as well as how to manage and evaluate them. An extensive handout will be provided.
