Summary

In this new guide the authors include lots of helpful information on making content area literature circles (CALCs) an important part of the classroom teaching and learning experience. They show you clearly what content area literature circles are, their benefits, and their structure. They then give you the steps you can use to implement CALCs into middle school classrooms and cover what types of materials will enhance both the level of discussion and the amount of learning achieved through CALCs. Three chapters focus on specific strategies for engaging students in CALCs. You also see the importance of question and problem posing along with critical literacy skills and explore various strategies you can use to assess CALCs. Throughout the book there are examples from real situations with middle-level students, plus instructional activities you can use to demonstrate to the class, learning activities for your students to try in their own small groups, self-evaluation ideas, and more
