Student-Centered Book Clubs

One of the most beneficial activities for reaching student learning potential is peer discussion and collaboration. Perhaps the reason that it is so beneficial is also the reason it is so difficult to facilitate - meaningful and purposeful discussion requires quite a bit of scaffolding and modeling.

One way that I encourage peer discussion and collaboration is through Student Centered Book Clubs (aka Literature Circles).

This video outlines how I set up Book Clubs in my classroom so that student groups can run their own discussions, freeing me up for mingling and dropping in on group conversations! Enjoy!
