This book is awesome for any educator that wants to successfully begin and maintain literature circles in their classrooms. It gives you step by step information about how to introduce the concept to your students, how they should be run, the roles of the students, and how to assess your students. This is a MUST HAVE for ELA teachers!

This book is great for anyone interested in doing something a litle different in your classroom. I have used this concept for the last 8 years and my kids always enjoy learning with it. It is a bit harder to do with high school students, but I just choose novels that relate to them and that they actually enjoy reading. It makes learning a little less painful to them! I'm all about students learning when they don't even realize they are learning!

I was looking for a way to get my kids talking and engaging in the texts they read. They are catching on to the format and I feel good about the direction we are going in my Middle School English Language Arts classes. I modified the format somewhat (We're all reading the same book) but it is still working well! I also chose to focus on "Summarizer, Word Wizard, Questioner and Passage Picker" because those seem more aligned to the common core and seem the most crucial to me. Very helpful book!

Wordy, takes time to get through the fluff and get to the useful ideas. Had I been in a book store and able to thumb through the pages I would not have purchased this book. I'm looking for ideas and easy accessibility. This book isn't it.
